I am a fan of a mic drop. That’s because it’s the perfect finale to a diss, a triumph or a point made. The mic drop may have replaced the word, “punto,” which was made famous by Nuyorican poets like, Willie Perdomo. And we can thank the all mighty Kanye West for that.
He’s so amazing, you guys! Says Kim while Kanye is dressing her up like a doll.
Kimye got me to thinking about mic drops and whether they can be used in our day to day lives. Like, should I just carry a microphone and drop it whenever I catch the train after running like a cheetah? Is it appropriate to mic drop once my gynecologist tells me that my uterus looks great? And what about in relationships? Perhaps we should mic drop during specific occasions, like these:
1. When you win a fight with your man:
After a Texting Battle Royale, your man comes home, whimpering like a sad puppy. He sits beside you on the love seat though you feel no love for him in that moment at all! With sorrow-filled eyes, he apologizes for being an asshole. And that's when you should forgive him (if you think he deserves it at that time) and mic drop.
