“Whosheee”… my “go to” word for any person, place or thing that I cannot remember the proper word or name for
My favorite word when I can’t remember the proper word or name for something is ‘thingy’. You know, that ‘thingy’ we saw blah blah blah.
Yup. Me too. Other than the fact that I am an older skinny female.
That plus what’s it whoosy what’s it. I can’t remember where I got that from.
That’s why I’m so looking forward to the Rapture and the Bema Seat. I’m looking forward to hearing every one of those stories and knowing my fellow believers on a deeper level than anything possible on this earth.
I love this post, by the way. I love words myself. I usually do a crossword puzzle everyday because it exposes me to words I’ve never seen before.
Woogety - the sound your shopping cart makes when the wheels are off…woogety, woogety, woogey. Also meaning that something is off.
i love the word “Halo”

i personally do not like to say Hello… i do type it sometimes but i much rather type Halo and say Halo to people. Lol
Wow @FoxMan ! This is marvelous! I had no idea that I could be so well defined. I need to write these down so I can remember who I am. Ha
I had linguistics in the seventh grade. I think I was the only one that liked that class. You reminded me of how much I love words that express SO much…. more. Thank you very much!!!
Is it the same as a kerfuffle?
It might be. I got it from the Anne of Green Gables series. Marilla used to say it about Anne. “What kind of cafaful has she gotten into now?”
And a delicious candy bar as well!
