Bodice ripping

There's a young lad come in to sort out Nancy's wonky desk. It turns out that he's a college friend of Lippy's daughter. She says.

"You're all over that poor lad like a rash."

"No I'm not. I can't just ignore him, I've known him for years. You've got to say hello, even in here."

"What are you like?"

"I'm not! Pack it in, you'll embarass him."

"If we're embarassing him why are you the one going pink?"

"Stop it!"

"We'll have to get a sweat shirt made for you: 'Library Cougar'"

Demi Moore is alive and well and living in Helminthdale. Can I have a t-shirt too? M. DeFarge is 10 months younger than me.

Gadjo Dilo said...

I wonder what books a library cougar would take out.

Pat said...

I keep hearing that expression cougar and believe it applies to an older woman. Why?

Kevin Musgrove said...

Madame DeF: have a t-shirt, you enjoy yourself, girl.

Gadjo: her teeth.

Pat: I've no idea. I had to have one of the younger people explain what one was.

Urban Dictionary - Definition #6

"True cougars are classy, beautiful creatures who have made their successes on their own, have real brains, usually with expensive cars/homes, and are real head turners. Cougars seek younger men, and don't have to sneak up and attack...they know their younger mates are eager to get an experienced woman who won't ask if they'll call them the next day. Being a cougar is a positive thing"

Sorry - I didn't paste the important part. This is actually the preceding paragraph of Definition #6

"BIG misconception is that they dress cheap, wear hot pink nail polish, animal skin prints and are not-so-attractive old-looking hags with bleached hair (Yeah those women exist, but they are NOT cougars)"
