Tuesday Thoughts - Words


Child in Studio Portrait

There are some words I learned over the years that I can never seem to work into a sentence properly. No, not those words. These are words that had private meaning for the people using them. They didn't mean much to anyone but them. And me.

There was "heliscope" and "black reeso" to start the menagerie of "aminals". And I remember "haffieflawless" and "sawbies" and "goggie" and "kiddie". There was a doll named instantly as "Hazah". One person had an invisible friend named "Moobie Dar" and another was "Deen Donna".

Opinions were "Never!" and "Stupan" and "Ippy". And dressing up meant "High-Hose" and an "Uppy Dress".

I remember two tiny people arguing over whether food was "busketti" or "musketti". There was "nowk" or was it "nalk"? There was the hungry vision of "hanguber", "crunch cries" and a "malk" from another.

There was the personal appellation "Bewee Bupom" from one small one and "Weeger Peeger" from another.

My earliest memories include "chewbiber" and "wheeds" and "ploddow". There was "grunt pew" and of course "grunt pew hard".

To a few, Tony Bennett was singing "I wanna be around to pick up the peaches ...". Also, there were songs sung loud from the back seat of a Buick: "Stop in the name of lunch!" and "Shot to da hart and your too babe; You give love a Band-aid."
And "Bargislay".

You probably remember a few of these words too. Make a list. They are important words but they fade and get dim over the years from lack of regular use.

    I am so excited to finally get to sing the song about the peaches with Mr Bennett.

    "Bargislay" (Walk this way)
