n.— «She offers an example of how her new phraseology can empower a room. “I was at a party last night where I took Betty as a gift for somebody. They opened it up and were like, ‘Oh my god, is that blah-blah dye?’ I said, ‘It’s color for the hair down there.’ ‘What’s it called?’ ‘Betty.’ ‘So it’s for your … ?’ ‘It’s for your betty.’ From that point on, everybody just started talking about their betty. It happens all the time. They’ll say, ‘Wow, I just found a gray hair down there,’ or, ‘I haven’t seen my betty in 20 years, but I feel like I want to do something with my betty.’” “Do I have a betty?” I ask. “Of course, men have betties, too. Everyone’s got one!”» —“Princess Dye” by Jordan Heller Radar Oct. 12, 2006. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
