Talk about the innest lingo. There are many I use fondly too, but there’s a special one. BITCH. Abuse, obscene and derogatory. Derogatory?? okay, we’ll decide that later. Just came across this awesome e-greeting on yahoo and was appalled to realize how easily I related to it!! Ouch!! Well, I am sure its not for me though (lol) but I still like it a lot- The greeting. Have a look and let me know. 😀 Tried having a pic of that animated girl here…But am not too much savvy with this blog thing as yet. That greeting made me think. Today, almost everyone around me uses the word frequently (frequency depends).
As a kid, it used to be a word that made me flinch. “It is something bad, never to be spoken”- I made a rule. But in high school, and then in college I seemed to forget all rules. My family debates it is the effect of staying in a metro. (giggle) Well, I am not sold to the reason. It is more of an individual thing, I guess. I think there’s nothing bad in using the word (literally meaning a female dog) but I am careful in the presence of elder people. Cliched…I know. (grin).
I am generally a friendly person (Aquarian trait) and you’ll rarely see me alone. I like crowds and I looooove parties. I know how to keep secrets and I know the difference between sympathy and empathy. On a whole, I consider myself a good friend. (You might want a second opinion). But the fact I found the e-greeting so attractive and so like-me, I am zapped. What I understand is, the word is a slang. Alright. But is it derogatory? NO, I guess.
I enjoy being a bitch at times. Times when you have to teach a lesson to someone who never returns your treasured books (I stole them from her house when her mom was the only one present in the house), times when your roomie thinks its her duty to use all your cosmetics (I presented her with a set of cheap ones, she got the hint), times when people give missed calls and expect you to call back 3 times a day- only to discover that they are free and can have a chit chat (I never call back, but that’s after being a fool 20/25. What else?), etc…
Coming back to bitch, I also like the song Bitch by Rolling Stones and it goes like-
“Feeling so tired, can’t understand it Just had a fortnight’s sleep
I’m feeling so shot, I’m so distracted
Ain’t touched a thing all week
I’m feeling drunk, juiced up and sloppy
Ain’t touched a drink all night
I’m feeling hungry, can’t see the reason
Just ate a horse meat pie
Yeah when you call my name
I salivate like a Pavlov dog
Yeah when you lay me out
My heart is beating louder than a big bass drum,
you got to mix it child
You got to fix it must be love
It’s a bitch
You got to mix it child
You got to fix it but love
It’s a bitch, alright…”
That reminds me of this woman X who was mi friend’s roomie and mi poor friend, who otherwise had a victory record for female contaverciess, has had real tough times dealing with household issues with miss X. She had a hand written poster in her cluttered room which quoted the famous lines – “Life is a bitch and then you die, so F*#K ’em all and let’s get high!” 🙂
Uff! a whole post over and the concept is still not clear!
Anywayz, who cares!! lolzzz
