Word Wednesday- HEIFER

Standard

Today’s word is HEIFER. A heifer is a young female cow who has not borne a calf. Here in the south, we use this word as a pejorative when we’re trying our best not to call someone a bad word. I’m kind of sorry for the poor cows but I use the word all the time. Sadly, my most prevalent use lately has been in reference to an old, hateful woman as opposed to a young cow. I have a feeling she was just as bad as a young one, too.
