It occurs to me that St. Bob could add some delightful words to the dictionary. You may feel you could do the same.
Here are just three of his creations.
“Hand me that Frabba-snabbitz,” is his favorite. When he can’t think of Doo-hickey, Whatchamacallit, or ThingamaBOB, dare I say, he simply invents his own catch-all term.
Another is Wang-doodle, actually a synonym of Frabba-snabbitz. In all fairness, this was the name of a hotdog joint when he was growing up in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Today a Whang-doodle, with an H, is a strip of bacon wrapped in a spiral around a frankfurter. After doing this research, I can hardly wait to see the pop-up ads I get.
And last is Yacka-dacka-dooey. This is used in place of the one-syllable “Yay.” It reminds me of Fred Flintstone’s, “Yabba Dabba Doo!”
And now I have increased your vocabulary by three whole words. Well, “words” in quotation marks.
Feel free to tell me your own invented words. Meanwhile, be sure to watch my short Youtube Mom videos for all kinds of life hacks and brilliant advice.
