I came across the following dialogue in an American TV show, but I do not understand the parts in bold.
(A is a 40-year-old divorced woman who is trying to hide her real age and pretends to be 26; she couldn’t afford her house in New Jersey and the bank has foreclosed on it. B is a friend of A. Josh likes A and thinks she is 26)
[A and B are in a car. A is driving. A receives a text on her phone]
A: Will you check that for me?
B: Ooh, hotty hotpants alert. It’s from Josh.
[The text from Josh says: “don't make me wait till tomorrow, come over tonight”]
A: Oh, nice. What should I text back?
B: How about, “The escrow on my suburban New Jersey home is closed, and I’m on my way to tag everything for the movers”?
A: Why not throw in the fact that I’m 40 and a baby’s head came out of my Frida? [laughs]
I’m guessing throw in the fact that means ‘telling the fact directly’, but I’m not sure it’s really throw in + the fact. Am I misunderstanding this?
When I looked up escrow in the dictionary, I got the following definition:
Money, property, a deed, or a bond put into the custody of a third party for delivery to a grantee only after the fulfillment of the conditions specified.
I’m guessing it must have another meaning here than what I found, because how can money be closed? What does it mean that the escrow is closed?
