Yes, it's been around a while. Here in Adelaide, Australia, I wrote a note for myself in 2011 that I saw a woman say “You cheersing?” to a young girl in a hotel beer garden. The girl was about 3 or 4, so presumably the two were related. I didn’t hear the girl's response, but I saw the action of the woman and other adults in the group – clinking glasses and saying 'Cheers'. I had never encountered the word 'cheersing' before then.

Today I noticed a similar (in more ways than one) word being used as a verb. David Graham wrote: 'A man cheesed for the cameras while lugging a huge lectern out of the building.' https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2021/01/trumps-culture-impunity-produced/617638/

Michael: Good catch!
