My grandmother used odd words. Of course at the time I didn't realize they were odd until I started school and I got the huh? look. I'm not speaking a foreign language here people. Oh wait, maybe I was. Thanks Honey.
( I tried to take a picture of her picture... was not happening.)
Bumbershoot = umbrella
Chifforobe = dresser drawers
Divan = couch
Ottoman = footstool
These are just a few I can think of off the top of my head.
What odd words has your family handed down to you?
Ahahaha on Day I of the A-Z after purchasing another e-book
I responded to a blog saying:
The A-Z sure has been hard on my pocketbook
Who says pocketbook? It was too late to take it back, but not too late to use it as another example of some of the odd words I use.
