I am currently in a dilemma with my significant other. We woke up this morning and one of us said.
Person 1: "I am going to brush my teeth and gist."
Person 2's argument was that gist is an overall idea of something, or a snapshot so to say, and should be used in a way such as :
"The gist of my morning is that I got ready. In detail, I brushed my teeth, I combed my hair, and I ate breakfast."
Person 1 agreed with Person 2's definition of gist, but said that their sentence is capturing the same idea.
So who is right, and is there a more definitive way to describe why one is right versus the other?
