Can you define these terms bag hag? Dude Biffle? George Glass? Kryptonite Guy? Well then you need to pick up the handy, "Chick-tionary, From A-Line to Z-Snap, the Words Every Woman Should Know by Anna Lefler! Included in this hot pink paperback are often 450+ terms that every woman has heard but may not know what it means. This prevents you from stumbling over a reply to any of the terms listed above because you don't know what to say, because you have no clue what they are talking about.

To DE-mystify the terms listed above by the Chick-tionary terms in the book are as follows:

Bag Hag - More flattering known as a "purse enthusiast," the bag hag is the woman who tirelessly and annoyingly pursues a state of perfect handbag self-actualization through aggressive acquisition of every "it bag" that comes on the market. A willing slave to the whims of designer supply-and-demand, the bag hag happily announces that her man Silvio at Barneys just bumped her up on the wait list for the new Balenciaga. In contrast, a self-proclaimed bag hag is simple a woman who loves purses, but knows her limitations and is satisfied to worship the objects of her affection from afar.

Dude Biffle - a variation of BFFL (best friend for life), the dude biffle is the male version of the female biffle. Filling the gap between the female friend and the GMF (see also: gay male friend), the dude biffle is someone who, regardless of attractiveness or availability, is never given romantic consideration but rather bypasses any sexual tensions and lands directly in the best friend category.

George Glass - Originally invented by Jan on the Brady Bunch after "Marcia, Marcia, Marcia" won yet another boy's heart. George Glass is now the generic term for an imaginary boyfriend.

Kryptonite Guy - The one man in your life, past or present, against whom your womanly superpowers are useless. No matter how many tough talks your friends give you, no matter how many times you swear him off for good, you are a sitting duck for this guy, again and again.

So as you can see, if any of your teens come home referring to any of these terms you now know precisely just how to answer them. At the very least this book will serve as a delightful reminder that everyone has a skeleton in her closet - right next to her fat pants! I received this book compliments of TLC Book Tours for my honest review and found it very amusing to know there are now terms out there for virtually anything. Be warned, there are some sexually provacative terms in this book, so it is not a book for teens. With that being said, I would rate this book a 4 out of 5 stars!
