I don’t keep up with slang. Especially insults. Never have. In junior high, “bitchin” sounded like an insult, so I never used the word.
Lately I have received an email from a man who called me a name I didn’t recognize, followed by a link to his website. He informed me that this term was an insult. He even told me to click the link and “look it up.” Like I care what his made-up insult is supposed to refer to? They’re all sex, toilet, and intellect jokes. Which one he chose is of no interest.
Then a woman I with whom I was arguing on facebook ended her argument by typing “bite me.”
I know she’s not a gold coin. There’s no purpose in biting her to determine if she is real gold or a fake. But, what if she was one of those chocolate coins in a foil wrapper? There is a good reason to bite them. So, I could not resist. I typed, “Why? Are you delicious?”
Then a man entered our argument. He asked if he could watch while “you ladies get it on.”
I do not think this woman will be typing “bite me” any time soon again.
