though I must say I could live without a few of the crass wordsdefinitions included To be honest I m not totally sure if the book is meant for women or for men but I think both would enjoy reading itIn fact The Maestro and I both had a few laughs by randomly opening it and reading definitions on topics from fashion to relationships and everything in between He learned a lot and maybe he ll understand all of his girls a bit better now Plus did I mention we laughed a lotHere is the very first entry in the book A line adjective This term describes a skirt dress or similar garment whose silhouette flares out from the waist becoming wider toward the hem and creating a shape that resembles both the letter A and a teepee although for some reason the term teepee line never caught on Fitted at the waist and relaxed everywhere else the A line silhouette is both flattering to most figures and comfortable to wear More importantly however the A line will not divulge The Devil of

words every woman should know shares the essential verbiage for communicating effectively and intelligently without looking like a hot mess This was a hysterical look at some of the terms used on an almost every day basis in my life Yes growing up with two sisters and no brothers I m pretty well versed in the sometimes subtle or not so subtle ways women communicate What was hilarious about Lefler s book was her ability to put each word into a specific scenario in such a short amount of space Take the phrase I Hate You for exampleThis is one of those expressions that is as they say all in the delivery If spoken in a menacing or even straightforward manner it s meaning is well pretty clear If on the other hand it s exclaimed by one female to another with a seemingly warm or jovial inflection it becomes a complex expression of admiration andor envy An example of this subtle use of the phrase might be Omigod that dress makesou look so skinny I hate Catwoman you It s important to realize that when someone uses this expression withou she actually does in some small way hate Fictions de Jorge Luis Borges you p 97 The Chicktionary by Anna LeflerIt s endings like that that haveou
