pig out
Definition: To eat large amounts of food quickly and without good manners; to overeat
Example: 1) The pizza is here! Let's pig out
Ex2) At the game, we pigged out on hamburgers and french fries
Etymology: Pigs are famous for enthusiastically eating enormous quantities of food. So when a human 'pigs out', he or she is eating much like a pig
----------------
eat my dust
Definition: A phrase meaning "I'm winning!", usually used to taunt someone who is losing a race or any kind of competition
Example: 1) Eat my dust, boy! Catch me if you can
COLOR=red]Etymology:[/COLOR] In a car race, the lead car will produce a cloud of dirt that all the other cars will have to drive through; and the drivers of those cars will have to 'eat' (or breathe) that cloud
of 'dust' or dirt
--------------
hillpilly
Definition: A person from the country, typically with crude manners, speech and dress
Example: 1) When I stepped onto his property, the hillbilly came out of his shack, grabbed his shotgun, and yelled "Yeehaw!"
Ex :2) Man, I love that hillbilly music
Etymology: This somewhat offensive term is used to describe poor people living in the hills of rural America - a 'hill' is a small mountain, and 'billy' is a man's name
COLOR=red]Synonyms:[/COLOR] hick
---------------
hush - hush
Definition: Very secret
Example: 1) The operation was so hush-hush that even the commanding officer didn't know all of the details
Ex : 2)Let's keep that information hush-hush, OK
Etymology: 'Hush' means 'quiet'. So something that is 'hush-hush' should not be discussed or exposed in public. This phrase dates back to Word War I, when it referred to military secrets
-------------
play with fire
Definition: To flirt with danger; to invite disaster or trouble
Example: 1) Don't stand at the edge of the cliff -- that's playing with fire
Ex : 2)If you play with fire, you're going to get burned
Etymology: Fire is a dangerous thing, and if you don't take it seriously it could hurt you. In this phrase, anything that is potentially dangerous is compared to fire, and the injury that can result from fooling around with something dangerous is compared to the burns that you can get from fire
---------------
doofus
Definition: An awkward or silly person; a loser
Example: 1) My brother is a pretty nice guy but I wish he wasn't such a doofus
Ex :2)Joe spilled his lunch all over his pants again -- what a doofus
Etymology: 'Doofus' is probably a combination of 'dodo' (the name of an extinct flightless bird famous for its lack of intelligence) and 'goofus' (another name for a silly person
Synonyms: loser, dweeb, dork
---------------
chick flick
Definition: A movie that appeals to a female audience; usually a romance movie
Example: 1) "Titanic" is such a chick flick! Every girl I know has seen it at least three times
Ex :2) I don't want to see "Tears of Autumn." It looks like a dumb chick flick
Etymology: A 'flick' is a movie because the light flickers, or goes on and off very quickly, and 'chick' is slang for a girl
---------------
blimp
Definition: A very fat person
Example: 1) Look at that blimp! He must eat six meals a day
Ex :2) Why is this blimp sitting in front of me? I can't see the movie screen
Etymology: Literally, a 'blimp' is an airship (a large balloon-like vehicle that travels through the air). A person who is very large resembles a blimp. Needless to say, this isn't a very word to use
---------------
goner
Definition: Someone who has died or is going to die soon; something that has failed or is ruined
Example: 1) Yoyodyne.com is a goner -- it hasn't made any money in over three years
Ex : 2) Paul is going to try to swim across the Pacific Ocean. Man, he's a goner
Etymology: 'Gone' (the past participle of 'go') refers to someone who has left or is dead. When someone has died, you might say that they are 'gone
---------------
beemer
Definition: A BMW; a car made by BMW
Example: 1) Sarah's parents gave her a new beemer as a graduation present
Ex : 2) Dude, I'm so bummed. I just crashed my beemer
Etymology: This phrase became popular in the 1980s, when BMW became a popular luxury car in the U.S
---------------
scarf
Definition: To eat quickly, with great hunger and little regard for etiquette
Example: 1) When I woke up from my nap, I took a shower, grabbed a beer and scarfed a big sandwich
Ex :2) On any given day, Americans will scarf down over 50 million hamburgers
Etymology: As a slang word, 'scarf' comes from the 19th century slang word 'scorf', which meant the same thing. 'Scorf' derived from yet another slang term 'scoff' which had the same meaning, going all the way back to the 1500s
Synonyms: chow down

I CAN'T FIND WORD TO EXPRESS MY ADMIRATION

A Rose For My Friend
Thank you for sending me little things
To make me think, laugh or smile.
For when I am down, it picks me up
If only for a while.

That is why friends are so dear,
Just because they care for you.
And you know they're there with a listening ear
Or to take away the blues.


And I give thanks for all the friends
The good Lord sends my way
For He knows we all need some cheer
Each and every day.
So to all my wonderful friends,
I send my love to you
Because I know that you're my friend
Forever, through and true.
