Also referred to as SNOMG and SNOWTF, the North American blizzard affectionately known as Juno is gracing Brooklyn. I am indoors, under a chunky knit blanket, having just made Italian wedding soup (gluten free) and sipping wine. The radiators are hissing away.
For the first hour, snow in NYC is gloriously white and pristine. The city is becalmed, and covered in a blanket of pixie dust. The streets close, the walkways come to a halt, and all is still. Then, the dogs begin to piss, and the oil leaks, and the soot returns. But, oh what a lovely hour!
In slang terms, when something is “clutch,” it knows how to perform under pressure in those crucial moment that comes between winning and losing.
In fashion, a clutch is made to carry the essentials: lipstick, keys, a phone, and perhaps a few tampons. The bag is generally used at night, and meant to be held in one’s hand as easily as an envelope or small parcel.
Combining these terms, one can have a “clutch that is clutch”.
