A phrase used to denote the presence of a second party female that is involved with a married man and resides in that man's home with his wife. "The Shadow" will `float' around behind, call excessively, and question constantly the married man, all in an attempt to gain his favor forever. "The Shadow is known to check your cell phone, screen your calls to home(even if they are from your boss),erase your voice messages so you don't get them, and frequently cops an attitude if your attention is NOT on her 24/7.
Me: Dad can you run me to the mall? I need to pick up new sneakers for your grandson.
My Dad: Hold on a sec, The Shadow is hanging about. You know I can't say shit when she is around.
