There’s a new word for us all to loathe, internalize and later on use unintentionally in conversation, and it is “legiterally.”
A bro-speak fusion of legitimately and literally, “legiterally” can be used to describe a truth so profound that real, actual words are not enough to convey its totally-ness.
And like “selfie,” “friendzone” and “lol” before it, it’s only a matter of time before “legiterally” shows up in a country song. So, here’s a handy guide of potential uses.
Florida Georgia Line are legiterally running out of room for arm tattoos.
Garth Brooks’ stage prop is legiterally a time machine to the ‘90s.
Kacey Musgraves is legiterally stuffed right now.
Blake Shelton is legiterally making up his own gossip.
Well it wasn't easy but I decided to be honest and tell Miranda that Taylor Swifts song "Wildest Dreams" is about me.. Shes still laughing.
