One Tough Broad

I like the word “Broad” and its connotations. One Tough Broad, to me, is one of the highest compliments a woman can receive. Joan Rivers, Suzanne Pleshette and one of my all time faves, Elizabeth Taylor… all Broads. I remember when Joan Rivers’ husband killed himself and she hit the road working. My mother always admired her for that; her husband bailed and left her with a little girl and an assload of debt and she shook it off and went to work.

I don’t know that I have attained “Broad” status but I will always work toward it. Broads are tough mothers, passionate partners. Broads live out loud in living color. Work hard, play hard. Drink, smoke, swear. No apologies. And if you are ever in trouble, you want a Broad on your side. Broads get things done. Broads have huge hearts, big brains, beautiful shoulders to cry on. But they aren’t going to let you cry for long. Get it out and get on with it.

Broads are hot.

I know a Blogger Broad and you all should meet her. She goes by The White Trash Gourmet. Have you read her? Do you follow her? You should!

Why The White Trash Gourmet? In Kim’s own words:

I can survive outdoors, catch clean and cook a fish, and I specifically sought out a Waffle House when I traveled to Ohio. Oh, and I was raised a Baptist. I’m a little edgy, I curse like a sailor and on occasion I have a wee too much to drink. As a kid one of my favorite snacks was left over rice with sour cream and Lawry’s salt. I’m terribly messy.

She is wickedly and unabashedly funny and foul-mouthed, self-deprecating, self-aware, and one tough Broad. She’s a writer and a cook, go look at the Gallery on her page. Doesn’t it make you want to gnaw on your computer screen? I did and my boss walked by, but he knows enough to leave me alone when I’m gnawing.

TWTG is a single gal, working, supporting her three kids. She has a good relationship with her ex. She’s good people. And she will stop at nothing to entertain us, her readers. She is enterprising, go see her stuff on Zazzle!

And you can buy TWTG mugs and aprons, go look!

I’m lucky enough to be her friend on Facebook and a couple of months ago, I read this update and liked it, loved it, told her I loved…..wanna party with this Broad!

“You know you had too much fun when you flirt with the Carlsbad PD while flagging down a cab to drive you thru Carl’s Jr.”

Sure I’m twisted in various ways but that really cracks me up and I’m just pissed I haven’t done it myself.

The White Trash Gourmet is a Broad you can count on. Go check her out and learn to do things with bacon you never thought possible.

As Kim the Broad would say, “That’s why I’m so awesome: because I’m awesome.”
