New Words

CUSS inspired me to write this post with her list of invented words.

I still use a word in my head that my first ever boyfriend made up. We were headed into New York City via train. We waited on the platform, and when the train arrived, the door to the train ended up right in front of us. Snidelklatch. It means the occurrence of being in the right spot - ie right where the doors are - when public transportation stops to pick people up. I use it in my head for the bus, for trains, for subways. I have never spoken the word and am really not sure how it is spelled.

I always thought another word I use was made up, but it really exists. Definitively.

So, have you any words you use that you've made up? Do tell!

PS-Bra counter is +1

Redonkulous - Ridiculous, but more so. Because it refers to donkeys.

PS - :) Whenever I see your updates on the bra counter, I think of player profiles for D&D games. "Charisma, +4." "Strength, +6." "Bra counter, +1."

Dingus and Dinger - Dingus is the female part and Dinger is the male part of anything. For example, a nut is a dingus and the bolt is a dinger. C:)

Squirrel, that's great!
Hmm... is Bra+1 related to Charisma+4? ;-)

Craig, that's good too...

My girls love to say redonkulous too.

I use a lot of the same non-words a lot of other people use to - like fuckeduppedness.

Eggswith. It's what's for dinner when you're feeling impoverished. It's eggs in a pan with whatever you've got lying around. Even if it's just hamburger meat and some salsa packets from Taco Bell. My mother invented it after The Divorce.

Redonkulous is THE word of the COUNTRY!
