  2. Short and sweet --"a dead giveaway" this actually can be taken a couple of different ways -- the guy just may not be too discreet? -- or it is just his personal best leaving her mark to tell all he is hers?

    Either way -- it is a good magpie and one to ponder...

  9. I love how you "tells it likes it is". Dove commericals may not think "hussy" a pro-active word for liberated ladies of the sexual revolution? I need to get out my Funk and Wagnalls. What is a hussy anyway, a brazen woman? What's a brazen woman? Like your lipstick color; Hot hot hot! Some like it hot. Yes they do. Where would we be without hot brazen ladies de la nuit? Most men would agree! What about ladies, do we like the term hussy? As long as nobody calls me a hussy I'm ok with it! haha!
