Do you ever use the phrase 'is a thing'?

Such as 'those pants are a thing!'
meaning it's a fad or an ordeal or something.

  • Not like that. But when something goes down I'll be like "that's a thing that just happened."

  • Yup. Doesn't matter if it's incorrect, it's easier in a language context.

  • Lol I think I've used that... twice. ^^;
    But to be fair English is not my mother tongue so I would have probably used it a hella lot more if it was.

  • Maybe. Like in the context of "skinny jeans for men are "a thing" right now, and that's extremely unfortunate..."?

  • No. Sounds kinda weird or unusual to me. So I don't use it.

  • I don't use it in that exact context. I basically use it as a substitute for: "Yeah, I'm serious, that exists."
