    Smile What does these word means?

    Hello. I'm Chung.
    I am studying at the college in Korea.
    Last week, I got assignment and I've been working on that.
    The assignment is a transcription.

    "Kittie's mission - find Grace a guy that's got that,
    just got out of bed tossed, good looks kind of thing going on."

    I could hear like the above, but I didn't understand a meaning of the words "bed tossed".
    I also could hear "bed tousled".

    Dose this mean "bed-hair"?

    Please Help.

    Thank you.

    Hello there,

    "Kittie's mission - find Grace a guy that's got that,
    just got out of bed tossed, good looks kind of thing going on."

    You can get tossed out of bed, for instance when you are thrown out of bed. So "tossed" (from the verb "to toss") is an informal, colloquial way to express "getting up"...

    On a whole, the expression you're trying to understand is humoristic, referring to a person who even looks good when tossed out of bed, or when awoken suddenly, a person who even looks good with a sleepy head...

    Hope this helps!

    Kind regards,

    Thomas (not a teach)

    He is slightly dishevelled, with his hair slightly standing on end, a bit of stubble on his face, sort of like Brad Pitt in this picture: http://www.topnews.in/uploads/brad-pitt7.jpg

    sort of like Brad Pitt in this picture:

    Are we to understand this just happens to come from your vast stock of educational and teaching resources...

    ...or do we suspect this comes from a highly personal (and possibly just as sizable!) collection...
    ...and that the just-got-out-of-bed tossed good looks kind of thing is not just Grace's cup of tea?
