noun. Roomier than the great outdoors. Greater than the imagination. Fatter than your mama!

Real citation: "I'm actually hoping that I am sitting closest to the infant when I get on the plane. Unlikely, though, given my exit row-ness."
(Jennifer Leggio, Aug. 20, 2008, Twitter,

Made-up citation: "On my last two flights, I luxuriated in opulent exit-row-ness. Seldom do I experience such joy as when my quivering lips say 'yes' to whatever responsibilities are demanded in exchange for these primo seats. I'd yes anything for the extra space. The real question they should ask is: What wouldn't you agree to at this moment? What affront to God, Mom, country, decency, or puppies would you not affirm in exchange for life-giving, nap-facilitating, back-relieving legroom? I wouldn't sell my dog to pirates, but then again, I hear some pirates are quite nice this time of year..."
