look up any word, like blumpkin:
Before a relationship is committed (which is often different from consummated, depending on your morals, values, and comfort level), the title for the main person in your life is ‘Sheriff’. To have a ‘Sheriff’, one does not need a ‘Deputy’ or ‘Deputies’, though that could be considered acceptable given the only slight significance of the title over a ‘friend’ status. ‘Shooting the sheriff’ is effectively the same as breaking up, but since the relationship was not elevated to boyfriend/girlfriend there is no semantic modification of the terms of said relationship.
Tom: “Dude, weaksauce, I shot the sheriff.”
Brian: “Liquid lamecake, Broseph! You should grab some Boddingtons and we’ll throw down on some Dr. Mario.”
