Urban Theresa

with one comment

Since I don’t have any time in my days (or nights, for that matter) to write a proper blog post, I thought I’d treat my readers to a spot of urbaning*:


1. A cute, smart, talented girl. She’s really cool and can find humour in almost anything. Everyone likes her. She has a beautiful smile and pretty eyes.
Theresa is too cool for school.

2. Spelled “Theresa”, it was ranked as the 717th most popular name for girls born in 2006, down from 226th in 1992. (It ranked 65th in 1950, and 102nd in 1900.) The name implies one who is destined to work hard, but who will receive great bounty for her efforts. Hot – as people call it, pretty, cute, beautiful, humorous, talented, a hard-to-hate sort of girl. The one that everybody likes.  The name St Therese, Theresa, or Teresa – no particular way of spelling it** – means little flower; a flower representing beauty and grace.
“I will let fall from heaven a shower of roses.” – St Therese.
Theresa, with her natural beauty and grace, will become a woman who changed life as it is.

3. v. To have a major spaz, often including screaming, smacking, pulling hair, and shunning.
She “awoke” and went theresa on the aliens.

4.  Usually a young girl who dresses like a whore to attract innocent teen males; resembles someone from a trailer park; always has her bra hanging out.
Ew, did you see him go to prom with Theresa? Her bra was all over the place!
One question and one request:
Which “Theresa” you think I am?
And let me know about your urban slang persona(e).
The comment box awaits.
* Typically, I couldn’t resist lightly editing the entries, if only for spelling and grammar. This took a little time but was preferable to vomiting in parentheses after every second word.

** Um, I’d beg to differ. I’m very particular indeed about how people spell my name. And about how they pronounce it, for that matter.
