If I say stoosh, it usually means huff.

"She's in a stoosh with me"

Thanks, I think he meant this one,

"Conceited, superior, having an air of bitchy hauteur particularly with regard to personal appearance - but with good reason."

... because he said that I don't let anybody (meaning him! ) in.


Thanks for that

To quote Grandpa Simpson:

" I used to be with it but then they changed what it was & what I'm with isn't it."
I feel like this sometimes too.

It's of Jamaican origin can also be spelt stoosh and is linked to the word stoshus ( not to be confused with the Irish word Stocious) which is older but has much the same meaning.

Taken from : http://privatewww.essex.ac.uk/~patri...pers/index.htm


stoosh /stush/ attrib [cf DJE stoshus] Haughty, supercilious; pretentious; overly proud

(now mostly pejorative, but see earlier positive senses of STOSHUS; note that they were

rural, while citations below are urban) 1989 Aug 28 Daily Gleaner letter to the Editor

"In the Flair magazine of Monday July 17, GW made mention of Ziggy Marley's patois

accent and noted the difficulties that his fans were having in understanding whatever was

being said by their reggae star. May I say that I also have noticed this and though I do

understand what is said, I often wonder why he goes to the extreme. I do hope Ziggy

does not take bad heart to this fact but will try and do something about it. We don't want

him to talk 'stoosh'-- God forbid!-- or with any foreign 'okcent', but simply to speak

comprehensive [sic] English-- bearing in mind that he is not doing this to impress

anyone, but simply to let his fans understand." 1989 Nov 12 Patrick tape JC-U45b-14 &

Most of this guys friends are from the Caribbean so I was probably right when I asked if he meant 'stuck up'.

Sweeeeeet, thanks.
