    wet

    A certain British author sometimes describes a character as :wet". It is possible that it means he is under the influence of alcohol, but it seems more as though it is describing some attribute of the character's personality. Can you clearify the meaning in any way?

    Re: wet

    You are going to have to print the sentence or tell us more.

    "Wet" is also a term to describe a spy.

    Re: wet

    In one book, a 17-year old school girl is talking with a co-worker of her father. She has used a newly coined slang term "drizz".

    He says "Like a wet boyfriend?"
    She says "It would be pretty drizz tlo have a wet boyfriend."

    In another book, the protagonist is discussing the wine steward at a restaurant.

    "He was wet."

    It means ineffectual, effeminate.

    Thank you. That's the sense I got from it, but I wasn't sure. In that case, a wet boyfriend would certainly be drizz!
