Excerpted from How to Get Around MIT (HoToGAMIT), a student guidebook issued to all incoming MIT freshmen:

flushed – (1) pp. Turned down or out. Disappointed in some endeavor, usually involved with selling oneself. Examples: “I got flushed at the mixer,” “I just got flushed by [fill in fraternity name here]” (2) v. To get a reddish hue on one’s face from heat, exertion, or embarrassment. Example: “I got flushed at the mixer.” (3) pp. Disposed of. When said of a person, this connotes dismissal or expulsion. Example: “I got flushed at the mixer.”

scrod – (1) n. A baby codfish. Example: “I got scrod by the Dining Service.” (2) v. Past tense of screw. Example: “I got scrod by the Dining Service.”

Let’s use our new words in a sentence:

“After being scrod by Boston Casting, I got flushed by MasterChef.”

What? And quit show biz?

Ah, jeez. I’m just getting over being sick so I’m doing some catching up, and I’m sorry to be reading about this, finally. Still, Fox is beneath you. Seriously.

And your description/photos of your boeuf bourgignon made this recovering-from-gastroenteritis almost-vegetarian hungry for the first time in a week.

Sorry to hear about your own experience with being flushed. The two experiences are not dissimilar, but I didn’t drop five pounds.
