The beautiful and vivacious JJ directed me to one of my new favorite blogs, Girl Gone Child. You know a blog's going to be good when the categories alone (Vaginas; Hipsters and Douchebags) make you laugh (what can I say, I have the sense of humor of a thirteen year old boy). Here's an excerpt from their ever so astute glossary:
N. A haggard, single mother with tattoos.Back in the day, Cheri was HOT – smoking hot. But she’s never been very bright. She pursued a career as music video dancer and got caught up with a Jake* who convinced her to keep the baby, then bailed once he realized that babies cry a lot. Cheri always relied on her looks to get by, but she doesn’t look that great anymore, and the tribal arm tattoo is starting to fade. Thank god for Gunnar (Cheri’s 4-year-old son). He’s what keeps her going to her job at the tanning salon five days a week.
Usage:“I feel sorry for that kid’s mom. She must be a Cheri.”
You'll have to go to the site to find out what a Jake is. Happy reading.
