1. slang A street address. An abbreviation of "address." Let me write down my addy so you'll know where you're going. What's the addy again? Seven-something Elm Street? Whoever sent this letter must have gotten the addy wrong because there's no one here by that name.
2. slang An email address. What addy did you send that email to? He says he didn't get it. Most girls in the late '90s had totally embarrassing email addies, like SweetiePrincessAngel99. Yeah, my addy is my first and last name, but it also has numbers at the end—did you include those?
3. slang A shortening of Adderall (a stimulant prescribed primarily to treat ADHD and narcolepsy), especially when used as recreationally or as a study aid. I've got a huge test in the morning, so I'll just pop a couple addies and stay up all night studying. A bunch of kids at the party were getting tweaked on addy. I've never taken addy, but I bet some of the best students in the class probably do.
