I know that I am being a blazen hussy by even suggesting this,
You blazen hussy!
A little bit ago, she called my girl a Blazen Hussy!
You can see the confusion with “blazing”:
the thought of my grandma getting down and dirty is difficult enough to stomach, but to think she was a blazing hussy having sex before marriage – GASP
max thinks hannah is a “blazing hussy” but
Maybe a kiss. Or two. (OVER THE COURSE OF 2 HOURS, I’M NOT A BLAZING HUSSY.)
Shades of “flaming” and “flamboyant” perhaps?
Apparently “brazen” is to do with “brass” and not with “brazier”.

Sometimes the water flows uphill…
: “The brazen speed meant for sore muscles. ”
: “As if to challenge my brazen speed my teacher corrected my exam right in front of me. ”
: “The druid sped between branches at a brazen speed that scared squirrels and birds amongst the dense cluster of trees stretching out on all sides. ”
Hatching new language, one eggcorn at a time.
Brazenly delish. Blazen hussies! Here’s a ever-so-slight variant that might be an ingredient.
