In the vibrant world of TikTok, one term that's been making waves is "extra." If somebody labels you as "extra," they're suggesting that you're being over the top or overly dramatic. It's the go-to term for describing someone who tends to take things to the next level, whether in their actions or expressions. For instance, if someone insists on throwing a grandiose birthday party for a pet goldfish, they can certainly be deemed "extra."

Here are a few examples to help you grasp its usage:

  1. Sarah's reaction to winning the game was so extra; she danced around the room for a solid ten minutes!
  2. John brought a full-sized karaoke machine to the picnic - talk about extra!
  3. At the coffee shop, instead of ordering a regular latte, Lisa asked for a unicorn frappuccino with glitter - definitely an extra choice.

Synonyms for "extra" include extravagant, excessive, over-the-top, and flamboyant. So, the next time you encounter this term on TikTok, you'll know exactly what it means and how to use it!
