    Term: embrace the suck

    Your definition or explanation: See "Example".

    Example: (Unfortunately, the issue of the publication in which this expression was written seems to have beeen thrown out, so I'll have to rely on my memory): "The US servicemen in [...] Iraq use an expression, "embrace the suck (my underlining)". Translation: Times may be hard, but you've got to roll with it." - So the explanation was given in the article.

    One or more places you have seen the term: I'm pretty certain it was in TIME magazine, and it appeared in, I believe, the July 21, 2014 issue.

    Have you looked for this term or meaning in dictionaries? Yes __X__ No ___

    Have you found it? Yes ____ No _X__
