Watchamacallit

I've seen a thing going around, where you videotape yourself saying a list of words and answering some questions.  It's supposed to show us your crazy accent and local words you use for everyday things.  I just listened to running backwards in high heels and she's southern and it was such a trip down memory lane from my college days!

I will spare you the videotape and the list, but suffice it to say it has words like aunt and route and other things that no one outside of New England can say right :)

Instead, I will just answer these questions and then you can do the same on your blog and let us know what crazy things you say!

What is it called when you throw toilet paper on someone's house?
It was tped or toilet papered.

What is the bug that when you touch it, it rolls into a ball?
Water bugs.

What is the bubbly carbonated drink called?
soda

What do you call gym shoes?
sneakers

What do you say to address a large group of people?
Everyone, you guys, guys

What do you call a spider that has an oval shaped body with extremely long legs?
daddy long legs

What do you call your grandparents?
grandma and grandpa

What do you call the wheeled contraption you carry groceries at the supermarket?
cart

What do you call it when it rains while the sun is shining?
"it's like Florida out here"

What is the thing you change to tv channel with?
the t.v. control

I'm adding this one because it's such a summer thing here:

What do you call the golf game that kids love to play, where you usually hit the ball through windmills and around corners?
mini-golf, miniature golf

Isn't it amazing that we all speak this language and have such crazy names for things?  Now tell us about what you say!

I love comments almost as much as I love summer. I reply to all comments except those ridiculous anonymous comments offering me dirty deeds and real estate. When you leave your comment, please make sure your own settings will allow me to reply to you. Nothing makes me sadder than replying to your comments and then realizing it's going to the no-reply@blogger address!
