(verb) to stop what you are doing, cease (This is a military term derived from the command “at-ease” which, even though sounds like it should mean “to relax”, actually is more restrictive than when a soldier is at “rest”, where a soldier is free to move, talk, smoke, etc. It is from this point that it is used to bring a soldier under control, particularly if the soldier in question is involved in grab-ass.)
Soldier: HEY CHICKY BABY! DO I GET SOME FRIES WITH THAT SHAKE?
Sergeant: AT-EASE THAT SH** OR I’LL HAVE YOU STANDING BEFORE THE SERGEANT MAJOR!

Jun 14 Word of the Day
Referring to women who are sexually or romantically attracted to other women. Applies to both lesbians and bisexual women, as it is only the same-sex attraction that matters, not any other attractions the women may have.

Originates from the Greek poet Sappho, a bisexual woman from the Isle of Lesbos, from which we get the term lesbian.
The sapphic women greatly enjoyed each others company.

Someone who knows what you want, but gives you only enough to keep you thinking they might give it to you, without fulfilling your desires.

Originally, this was of a sexual nature, usually meaning a woman who dressed provocatively, but then would not go out or have sex with the men she was attracting.

Today, a tease can be anyone who leads others on.
My boss keeps implying that I might get a promotion, but won't say for sure one way or the other. I wish he'd stop being such a tease!

Did you see the latest QuestionableContent comic? Jeph Jacques is drawing out this thing with Claire & Marten just to be a tease!

Don't be a tease, just tell me! Did you buy the latest Mario Kart or not? If you did, I'm coming over to play it right now!

The Supernatural writers are just being a tease. Dean and Cas will never get together.
