    Smile mrow

    Hello. What does 'mrow' mean in this context?
    Does it mean 'bye'?


    (She is talking to her husband on the phone.)
    Okay, come home when you're done... I have something to tell you.
    I love you too.
    Mrow!

    Where did you see or hear this? 'Mrow' is not an English word.

    *** NOT A TEACHER ***

    I assume it's similar to "meow" (the sound a cat makes), and it indicates that she is her husband's pussycat.

    It's from a graphic novel by Nate Powell.

    Then the picture might well confirm emsr2d2~Mav~'s suggestion.

    The picture is showing that the woman is just hanging up the phone.
    And I think you are right.
    Thank you all.

    What picture?

    My first impression was that she's making the sound often accompanying an air kiss:

    mwah.

    I've suggested something without even taking part in the thread! Wow, I'm good!

    Since I'm here, but without being able to look at the picture, I'd be inclined to think it was a version of the "Mwah" kiss sound. However, the "sex kitten" meow sounds equally feasible, Eartha Kitt style.

    My apologies to ~Mav~. Tomorrow I'll try to wake up before I get up.

    NOT A TEACHER


    (1) Of course, I immediately rushed to Professor Google and learned that you are

    100% correct.

    (2) The Urban Dictionary tells us that it is "a human impersonation of a cat,

    either to annoy or show suggestiveness."

    (3) Maybe learners should not use this word, for -- according to the Urban

    Dictionary -- it can refer to romantic affairs or even to a certain illegal drug.
