Dropping the Mic

“A mic drop is the gesture of intentionally dropping one’s microphone at the end of a performance or speech to signal triumph. Figuratively, it is an expression of triumph for a successful event and indicates a boastful attitude toward one’s own performance.”

I had to look it up on the internet last night.

I thought I understood what the mic-drop was about, but after watching Jimmy Buffett yawn his way through the National Anthem yesterday, then drop the mic, I thought maybe I’d missed something.

Nope, I didn’t…Poor Jimmy did. Maybe he never got to see Whitney Houston’s rendition of The Star Spangled Banner; that one truly worthy of a mic-drop.

Oh well, you know what they say:

“Pride comes before the fall..”

or in this case, before “the drop.”
