härd tīm hō
HISTORIC BACKGROUND: Connected to the idiom regarding individuals that serve hard time in prison for host of reasons, whether from armed robbery to first degree murder.
A hard-time ho is a woman that is relegated to a specific station (such as being a mother, stripper, etc) that resulted from a multitude of skanky and whorish behavior. Such as having more than one ONS that produced more than one child, not knowing who your baby daddy is, or marrying someone under false pretenses.
Elizabeth Webber, a character on General Hospital, is a hard-time ho. It is no wonder she looks older than the current Lucky Spencer.
