grill

noun; zero derivation
Mouth or smile, usually referring to gold or platinum teeth in the mouth; personal space. The apparent meaning in this context is the mouth or teeth. In the second example, it can also mean the facial area or personal space. Possibly derived from analogy of a cooking grill and the way the metal range is oriented in rows as are teeth.
 
I got an iced out grill. Why you all up in my grill?
