In case you haven’t joined yet, I’ve been doing morning dog park chats over on my Instagram Stories. Every morning I head down to the dog park with Jack Jack and I chat about life. It’s my way of trying to open up more on social media about every day experiences (you can catch past chats on my highlights reel).
Last week, we chatted about strange DMs. Generally I love chatting with my #ssInstaFam in photo comments and direct messages. But I get the occasional odd ones. Case in point: someone called me a “MILF” and proceeded to ask me how old I was.
For those of you who don’t know, a “MILF” is an acronym for a “Mom I’d Like to F-word.” Even though I suppose it’s a compliment in some sorts, I was quite confused since I’m not a mother, unless you count being a dog mom.
About half of my #ssInstaFam agreed that the acronym is offensive. And a few people asked me what type of compliment I’d prefer. I thought about it when I was on a girls trip last weekend at The Madonna Inn. After talking it through with my girlfriends, I came up with an idea for a new acronym:
- Pretty Smart Woman
- Pretty Sexy Woman
- Pretty Sophisticated Woman
- Pretty Sweet Woman
- Pretty Successful Woman
- Pretty Strong Woman
As you see with the meanings we came up with for PSW, the compliment possibilities are endless. I don’t know about you, but I’d rather be called a PSW over a MILF any day of the week. So let’s spread the word, and the positivity for PSWs everywhere.
