As I roll out of bed every morning, I write a blog post, hoping for a minimum of eye rolls from my readers. That’s the way I roll.
Let’s roll out a definition of “That’s the way we roll.”
“That’s the way we roll” (“This is the way we roll”) means “That’s the way we are”. Another way of saying “That’s the way we roll” is “That’s the way we do things when we are being true to ourselves.”
“The way we roll” is how people behave when they aren’t “putting on a front” (faking it) but are expressing their true nature or their “real” attitude or reaction/s to that time and place. “That’s the way we roll” or “That’s the way I roll” is bluntly and unapologetically said with the unspoken addition of “and if you don’t like it, I couldn’t care less”.
The core meaning of “to roll” is “to move a certain way”. It’s my position that the slang meaning of “to roll” = “to behave in an intrinsic manner” comes from the belief that the way a person “lives and moves” reflects and determines that person’s being.
That’s the way pancocojams rolls and defines “That’s the way we roll.”
It’s time for me to roll out my latest photos, because that’s the way we roll here at The Year(s) of Living Non-Judgmentally.
Here‘s the way Boston Ballet dancers roll in “The Russian Dance” from The Nutcracker:
People in political power are rolling all sorts of ways these days. I hope some will be rolling out of the way a year from now. That’s the way I hope our country rolls.
I’m looking forward to seeing the way you roll in the comment section, below.
Here’s the way gratitude rolls at the end of my daily blog posts.
