Suffice (verb) – to meet or suffice a need
From “How to date a brown girl (black girl, white girl, or halfie)” by Junot Diaz
I came across this word while reading “How to date a brown girl (black girl, white girl, or halfie)” by Junot Diaz. It appears around the end of the reading, as the author talks about all the possible outcomes that could come with talking to that girl. It caught my interest because it’s a word that i’ve heard before but isn’t used quite often. So i’m curious as to how it ties in with the sentence and the author’s overall point.
“She might kiss you and then go, or she might, if she’s reckless, give it up, but that’s rare. kissing will suffice.” (Diaz).
After reading the definition of the word I better understand the context of how the author was using it in that part of the text. As seen in the quote, the author is discribing how the girl would react with you if you do said set of steps and how u would behave depending on the situation.
