frail

adjective; folk etymology repurposing
To be weak or unwilling to participate in fun activities
 
This is a word I’ve only heard once, but allegedly it was popular within the group chat of Early Decision prospective Rice students last year. It essentially means frail in the traditional sense, but instead of meaning physically frail, it means that someone won’t participate in activities such as drinking or partying with other members of a social group.
Etymology : a repurposing of the word “frail” as in “weak”
