oh, i thought of one during lunch. my whole family says "skanks" instead of thanks, because when i was little (like 2) i said skanks instead of thanks, and it stuck. literally everyone -- even some of my aunts/uncles and cousins say it! the first time my FI heard my dad say it to me when we were over at my parents' house for dinner, my FI was like uhhh WTF... haha

    That is funny, cuz we use that word (skanks) as another word for slut or whore. And your whole fam says it. And to mean such a good thing! hahahahaa, funny stuff.

        Oh yes, I use that one too!! LOL.

        I also always say 'sanks' instead of thanks or 'sank you'. No speech impediment, just me!

        What else? Any little gizmo in our family that doesn't have a name is called a 'fitzner' for whatever reason.

        Oh and those soda crackers that you use in soup? Those are bickies. They have been my whole life and will always be (thanks dad!)

        The best is Chris makes up words to songs all the time. It drives me crazy but makes me laugh all the time, cause he usually makes it sexual LMAO. The words pecker and pole get used alot.

        Okay, new word for my vocab, used by a colleague to describe a meeting:

        Moronothon

        ie., call my cell phone in about 45 minutes. I'm going to some moronothon on corporate governance.

        LOVE that. It's pretty much every single day at work...

        love that, and its the story of my life. i MUST start using that word.

        ok here is one of the gems off my personal list of stupid quotes that jose keeps:

        "that was the worst hurting bruise lasting ever."
        -said while i was sick, late at night when i was tired, 6 weeks after i had fallen in the bathtub and gotten a horrible bruise that just wouldnt heal. i MEANT to say that it was the longest lasting most painful bruise i ever had. go figure. sometimes i read my quote list and think how the hell did i get a masters degree in journalism? thank god i dont say stupid stuff like that everyday.

        All the time I say "I'm so hungry my tummy is eating itself!"
        Not really a non-word, but a funny saying that doesn't make sense :)
