[insert word]-sickles: Fingersickles = cold fingers. Melissasickle = cold Melissa.
BP: Big Plan. As in, “Hey, what’s the BP for tonight? Dinner and a movie?”
Foofy: Sticking up, out, or all over the place (as in a bad hair day).
Futz: To fiddle around with something until it is ruined beyond repair.
Habawa?: A question. It means, “come again?”
Melvention: Something I create. Maybe I haven’t created it yet, but I had the idea for the invention right? A melvention. An intermelvention would be a totally different situation and not at all pleasant so I won’t add it here.
Mish Mash: A whole mix of things.
Schwack: Many. A whole lot. More than a little.
Smunched: Squished. Flattened like a pancake.
Snarf: To eat very very quickly and with great enthusiasm.
Vocabularical: Having to do with vocabulary (or lack thereof).
“Let’s roll!” This means, “Let’s go” or “I’d like to leave now.” My husband bugs me about this all the time. He quotes it to me with a deep cowboy voice. Maybe I’ll change my phrase to “Let’s ride!”
“Break free from society.” This means do your own thing, baby. I used to use it a lot in high school. (Tragic, that I treasure it still.)
“Chaps my hide.” This means “that is upsetting me greatly”.
“Don’t sweat the small stuff.” A favourite of my mother’s.
“I hate rabbits.” Before PETA shows up at my doorstep, let me clarify! This is an utterly useless phrase used while sitting in front of a campfire and the smoke has just traveled your way and is choking you slowly. You use this phrase and supposedly the smoke should go someplace else. Look, I was a kid. We thought stuff like that worked. <g>
“SBD (Silent But Deadly)”: Not that I’m proud of it, but this was in reference to wayyyyyy too many bean burritos and their charming after-effects. My sister and I used to love to torture each other with this phrase, even when it didn’t apply.
“Lava Lamp”: Fun to look at, but not that bright. (I have to thank my ex-roommate for that one. I got it from her.)
“Lucy skit”: A situation so inane that it may as well have been scripted (as in, The Lucy Show). “It was a total Lucy skit when she fell into that vat of grapes at the wine tasting last week.”
“Mental Margarita”: I find it incredibly ironic that a woman who doesn’t drink has more than one reference to alcohol. Anyway, this is when you allow your brain a momentary lapse of intelligence.
“Oddly compelling.”: A situation or food that both draws and repulses you at the same time.
