“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.”
