Welcome to Urban Word Wednesday! New words, phrases, and sayings I am learning (and using in my day-to-day life) brought to you by ME…and the Urban Dictionary. You are gonna love these!
Glamping (a most beloved portmanteau): Shorthand for glamorous camping; luxury camping. It’s like regular camping but with nicer things than usual, being warmer, and more comfortable.
Examples Of Use:
Hubby and I were doing some shopping at Canadian Tire when I struck gold.
Me: OMG! It’s perfect. I can’t wait to go glamping with this treasure!
Me: you know…DUH….glamour camping!
Hubby: I should have known if there was such a thing, you’d find it.
Me: I am totally taken that as a compliment!
Me: don’t you think this stainless steel wine glass says rustic, glamour? It’s glamping baby. It’s our new camping style! Consider it like an upgrade…
Hubby: I must say, it suits you perfectly!
Me: I know, doesn’t it?!?! I think I’ll bedazzle it with some hot pink rhinestones to really glamp it up!
Hubby: that’d be swell – can you make me one in blue?
Me: absolutely…and I found you a little glamping treasure I think you’ll love. I mean, you know I wouldn’t want you to feel left out. How about THIS for cooking up our yummies while we are roughing it?
Hubby: that’s certainly an upgrade to our frying pan over an open fire. I could adjust…I think I’m gonna like glamping!!!
What’s your camping style? Would you go glamping? What other glamping gems have you seen that are “must haves”?
P.S. Remember, hubby and I are on vacation until April 23, 2012 but have fun and talk amongst yourselves!
