After two years of blogging, did I have my first rude comment?
Maria Ethelle said "whatever bitches" in her comment to my last post. Just that, nothing else.
I am sure it means something, but what? Did she (I assume it's a she) leave out the comma, as in "whatever, comma, bitches", using 'bitches' in the vocative case? In other words, calling the rest of the commenters and me 'bitches'?
Or did she use bitches as a verb, as in 'whatever being in the process of bitching'. In that case I can't make sense of the phrase because I'd need the 'whatever' part explained. Who or what is 'whatever'? To be able to bitch, do you need to be a person? If so, the 'whatever' needs to be replaced with 'whoever'.
Maria Ethelle, dear, may I call you Ethel? (Maria Ethelle is such a mouthful). I tried to access your blog but 'Profile Not Available' it said. Don't be shy, dear Ethel, Blogger positively encourages us to forego anonymity.
Or is 'whatever bitches' just a modern phrase the meaning of which escapes me?
Do enlighten me, somebody.
And if anyone else wishes to send rude comments, please add the explanation in a PS. Or point me to the right place in the dictionary. Otherwise you'd be wasting your time, which is surely not what you were doing anyway, was it?
PS: Is anyone else glad Christmas is over? No more for me for at least a year now, thank you.
