Any of you nerds familiar with the Merriam-Webster website? It looks something like this:
If you look closely, you will see that there is a daily feature called "Word of the Day," but there is also a new feature titled "Open Dictionary Word of the Day." The Open Dictionary is a collection of should-be words submitted by lil' ol' folks like me. Well, I drunkenly submitted a word the other day, and guess what? Guess what? Look closer:
Oh that's right that IS my word BITCHES!
It's actually a word that my classmate muttered under her breath during a 20-week professional reading and scholarship seminar that I and my other classmates became so fond of that we had a t-shirt for our prof made featuring said word. Now it's officially in the Open Dictionary.
Unfortunately, I was drunk enough that I seriously messed up the entry with grammatical errors (LOL!), but meh.
* Y'all may wonder why I'm up and blogging at 7 in the morning (or y'all might not give two hoots, but have you checked your panties for sand?) during spring break (when I really should be in Cancun flashing my little breastlings and going "WOOOOOOOOOO!" at no one in particular). Well I got up at 6 to drive little Reeseyface to the airport (he's going back to Texas for a week), which he convinced me to do after I'd had seven shots of vodka in three bloody marys.
And by the way, there was a BABY here yesterday, a REAL LIVE BABY, IN MY APARTMENT, yesterday evening between the hours of 6 pm and 7pm. I know what y'all are thinking: did it shriek in terror as soon as it entered the same room as you? The answer is no, but he did start crying at one point and refuse to stop, so his dad (Reese's friend Jake) took him home. Now I know, I know, many a "real" woman would have scooped the crying baby into her arms and soothed it instantly, but I am not such a woman, and in fact, anyone who knows my grace with tots is probably grateful that the baby didn't explode or burst into flames the instant he laid eyes on me (I just think this P.S. needs one more gratuitous parenthetical).
