Urban Word Wednesday: iFinger

Welcome to Urban Word Wednesday! New words, phrases, and sayings I am learning (and using in my day-to-day life) brought to you by ME…and the Urban Dictionary. You are gonna love these!

iFinger: The finger(s) you purposely keep clean when you eat something messy so you can operate your touch screen smart phone/tablet/GPS without making the screen look like your plate

Examples Of Use:

Hubby and I were at Pizza Delight (a weakness last week) when the waiter got the biggest kick out of our conversation.

Hubby: OMG I’ve missed pizza!

Me: I know, eh?!?! It’s absolutely delicious. Nice to have as a treat.

Hubby: ummmm…what in God’s name are you doing?

Me: (innocently) what???

Hubby: with your hand? You are holding the pizza like it’s diseased or something. Or like your hand is half paralyzed. What in God’s name?!?!?

Me: these are my iFingers. I need to keep them clean! Duh!

Hubby: iFingers?!?!?! I am almost afraid to ask. What are iFingers?

Me: you know, the fingers I keep clean while eating something messy in case of any imminent blackberry usage.

Hubby: imminent blackberry usage??? What could be so imminent that it couldn’t wait until you were done a slice or two of pizza?

Me: Baby…it’s social media! My fans could tweet or post a comment on my blog that requires my immediate attention. Napkin wiping could take away valuable seconds not to mention the grease transference risk.  

Hubby: Seriously?!?! Well you look semi retarded holding your pizza like that? The waiter probably thinks you are my decrepit cousin out for her weekly on-the-town venture!

Me: whatever. It’s my commitment to my fans and they appreciate it even if you don’t so laugh all you want!

What about you? Do you have an iFinger(s) that you keep clean while eating for smart phone usage? Tell me I am not alone here! Come on…share the wealth!
