dropping is used to inflate one's stature in a conversation by linking oneself to a famous person or situation. This is sometimes done while
talking about something completely different. The names are just "dropped" in there. Some attempts
are more subtle than others but it is basically
I see those hats everywhere now. When I was at the inauguration for Obama they were all over the place. But when I met Rupaul at that charity party last
month he said
they are on their way out. And good riddance too!
Did you catch
the name dropping in that conversation
about hats? So subtle...
