    To make figures (compulsory or freestyle), like, double-axel etc.
    Or, figuratively, someone who shows off.

    Hot dog...
    It is a kind of food like hamburger.
    There is a hot sausage in the middle of the sft bread roll, with ketchup or other sauces.

    I wonder if "hot dog" is commonly used as other meanings(eg happy/surprised exclamation, showing off).

    Any ideas?

    A hot dog is a frankfurter served hot in a long roll. It is also a person who performs showy, often dangerous stunts, as in skiing or surfing. It is used as a verb to express showing off in such a way; and it is also used as an interjection to express delight, enthusiasm, or surprise.

    Hello, Susan,

    Welcome back. <A bear hug>

    How can one express his delight by using 'hot dog'? :D Could you make it a conversation for the ease of comprehension. Thanks.

    Have I told you that you've got your own style? 8)
    You are a very special friend who will never ever say 'Thanks for the help.' Well, I guess I can settle for 'Thank for the help' as well. 8)
