1. I don't plan on face planting tonight.
  2. in other words, someone who would totally slay at Bend A Friend.

Does slay in the second sentence seriously mean like kill?

  • Face plant literally means to land on one's face, so figuratively it means to fail spectacularly; slay and kill are US slang terms in show business, particularly in comedic acts. They mean to be extremely successful.

"I don't plan on face planting tonight,” Face planting refers to falling on one's face. If someone does not plan on face planting they don't plan on falling on their face/embarrassing themselves or making a big mistake.

In the second sentence slay means to do better than anyone else. It does mean to kill but not physically. It's like to kill the competition/ to win over them. When someone says they are slaying or someone else is slaying it means that they are doing better (killing) then everyone else.
