curves, curves , curves. I love women with curves. My ladies are very different body types, both have a little extra, and the only thing i would change about either one of them is there self image. they are both concerned about how others see them and my telling them there are sexy has fallen on deaf ears in the past.

Now that we are all together its more difficult for them to ignore when I say they are sexy because i have back up. in another post a comment was made that " when one person tells you your a ass you can ignore it, when two people tell you, its harder to ignore" this works in a positive way as well.

slowly my ladies are coming to the realization that they are fine looking women and are extremely desirable. I'm worried I may have to start carrying a stick around to scare off all the suitors.

I got a buddy whose got swagger. He even swaggers when he staggers. He's shown me the real meaning of the word, the one Funk and Wagnall know nothing about. Swagger is a state of feeling. To swagger, is a state of being. Kind of like what Townes Van Zandt said about feeling lonely and being alone.

This would be an incorrect use of the word. A person's swagger, is the way they walk. Not the way the present themselves, or a state of feeling, as you put it. That would be the NEW meaning of the old word.

Sorry, but you are mistaken. In my hardcopy Third Edition of the American Heritage Dictionary, last reprinted 15 years ago in 1996, the definitions of swagger are below:

swag·ger (swăg' ər) v. -gered, -ger·ring, -gers. —intr. 1. To walk or conduct oneself with an insolent or arrogant air; strut. See Synonyms at strut. 2. To brag or boast. —tr. To browbeat or bully (someone). —swagger n. 1. A swaggering movement or gait. 2. Boastful or conceited expression; braggadocio. [Probably frequentative of SWAG] —swag'gerer n. —swag-geringly adv.
It is not just about a way of walking, and has long had multiple meanings, that are still used today.

Just because it was printed 15 yrs ago doesnt mean swagger as defined as braggadocio is a new meaning! lol

Now, frenemy is a new word. Also fairly new are the new meanings of twitter and tweet, gate rape, asshat, douchenozzle, da bomb, dope, bling, woot, good china, gangsta, youtube, beyotch, fuckbuddy, sike (psych), shizz or shizznit, bro, brosef, gay (meaning not cool), fundie, mofo, and dozens more.

Yes, I didn't quite follow that logic either. Just because something appeared in a dictionary 15 years ago doesn't mean it never existed before that. It just means that it is AT LEAST 15 years old, which in turn means that it was not invented by people who are in a certain age group today, and that it pre-dates things like Wikipedia and Twitter.

of interest to this poly community may be a quote from my old cross country coach and geometry (polygon) teacher:

"You have to be good enough to be a little arrogant, and arrogant enough to know that you are good."

In a word, swagger.

Welcome to the English language folks. Lots of words have multiple meanings and have for hundreds of years, get over it already.
