A slacker is defined as a dodger. A dodger is defined as a shifty person. And shifty is defined as tricky, crafty, foxy, deceitful, untrustworthy..... Hmmm....... I'm thinking I don't like my friends. Of course, it's always possible that I chose the wrong words to define. Let's try this again.
A slacker is defined as a dodger. A dodger is defined as a leaf hopper. And a leaf hopper is defined as any of numerous, homopterous insects of the family Cicaclellidae that suck plant juices, many being serious crop pests. Great, so now I'm a pesky little grasshopper. I'm still not liking my friends. Ok, let's try it ONE MORE TIME.
A slacker is defined as a dodger. A dodger is defined as a shifty person. Shifty is defined as foxy. And foxy is defined as attractive, stylish, exciting and appealing. Ok, I like my friends again.
