PGV | Party Girl Voice | NOT an STD
I would like to introduce you to a new term I heard while driving home from class recently. I frequently have my XM radio tuned to Cosmo Radio and this day in particular Cocktails with Patrick was airing. I cannot recall the exact conversation, but Patrick was either talking to a caller with PGV or was talking about PGV.
What is PGV you ask? Party Girl Voice is an interesting attribution not all females can possess. Those who are lucky enough to acquire PGV are very distinct in themselves. You've probably all heard it. And if you've ever spent a weekend with me, you are sure to know what I'm talking about. If you haven't ever encountered PGV, let me describe it to you. PGV is a sure sign of a great weekend. After spending this past weekend in Vail, CO skiing and hanging out with my college roomie, I returned to STL sporting PGV. Typically, I start developing PGV late in the evening after a few Jack Daniels cocktails (or any cocktail for that matter). By the end of the night I sound like I've smoked 10 packs of cigarettes (I am not a smoker) and sometimes can barely get a word out. It takes skill to perfect PGV. Lots of dancing and having lots of fun! It does not necessarily limit itself to the holidays and cold winter months, but with holiday parties, NYE and no school for me, it's sure to make an appearance more frequently.
One of the most infamous PGVs is that of Kristin Cavallari. I can specifically remember an episode of The Hills when the group heads to Miami for the Super Bowl. Kristin stays out partying all night and precisely displays the raspy voice characteristic of PGV with perfection. Kristin has been known to enjoy herself out and about in LA and cities across the United States. And who can blame her? She's hot. And she's young. She deserves to live it up while she can. There's always time to settle down in the future. But for now, rock that PGV, Kristin. And own it!
That brings me to this...I've heard conflicting reactions to PGV. My question to you...trashy? Or sassy? Either way it doesn't really matter. I can't really control it no matter how hydrated I stay or how much I talk while out at the bars. This past weekend, Kel and I encountered some guys in Vail who couldn't get enough of it and thought it was awesome we sounded like men. They may also have been gay...I'm not sure. This wasn't the first time we've been together and have been approached regarding our voices. We frequently encountered the same situations all throughout college and continue to any time we get together. Bottom line whether you find it attractive or not, PGV is a sure sign of a good weekend with my best friend.
