Define this.......


Okay, so at dinner the other night, Jason was telling us about his younger brother, Matt, and how he thinks that he is a geek (he likes computers and figures things out that he can't). As the discussion progressed (you don't need all those details), Jason told us that he was Matt's 'minion'.

At this point, Monty and I both looked at each other and I was the first to say 'what does minion mean'. Jason proceeded to give us the definition. I didn't think he had a clue what he was talking about, so I jumped up from the table and 'Googled' the definition.

I have to ask all my readers.........please be honest when you answer this.....don't look it up in the dictionary or Google it. Do you know what 'minion' (pronounced 'min yen') means? Leave me a comment.....I want to do a poll! I will wait a few days and see what sort or responses we get, and then I will post the definition and the rest of the story.

  12. I'm with the other ladies - I think it means someone who serves someone else. Or someone who is inferior to oneself. Kind of like the little fish in the pond of big fish!

    Can't wait to hear the rest of the story.
