Slang Gang Word of the Day

Lehman Sisters

Wives/girlfriends of recently-orphaned Lehman Brothers executives who bond to share their collective, unexpected fall down the socio-economic ladder.

Amanda and Jane are now the Lehman Sisters 'cause the Devil took away their Prada when their boyfriends lost their jobs on Wall Street.

Now THAT'S funny!

I'm too out of it to know who the Lehman Brothers are, but I get the Devil and Prada and hahaha, it's still funny!

(Okay, if my comments today are really, really lame, just blame it on jet lag. Sorry.)

You're right, that's a good one!

Cadance said...

I think this just might be one of my favorite ones....not sure if I'll get a chance to use it in real life though...I'm gonna try hard to insert it into some conversation somewhere!

Melissa- I just read your post about your hubby, and I am crying for you. That's scary, and upsetting. We will pray for him, and your family.
Let me know if there is anything I can do for you!
Love, Sher

Just finished catching up on all your posts. I've been out of the loop this week! This comment doesn't have anything to do with your slang gang word. Just wanted to say that Sissy is A. DOR. ABLE! You're freakin' darling and so dang funny, too. I love your blog. I don't visit often enough but when I do I get totally cought up. Promise.

And last but not least...I'm not real religious these days but you and your Splenda will be in my prayers. You two seem to have what most of us only dream about.
