Words You Coined for Everyday Objects

On Fridays, I post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else's reply, whatever you want. On to this week's topics of discussion...

1. I asked this question last year but loved the responses so much I'm asking again. What incorrect (or invented) words for everyday objects did you, your siblings or your kids dream up? (Cassie's use of "The Buttons" for a TV remote has stuck with me.)

2. I'm always way too enthusiastic when the waiter asks how things are going. Usually things are just fine, but not worthy of a high-pitched "GREAT!!" I'm opening up the floor to hear about your not-a-big-deal but kinda funny social quirks.

3. What's your favorite Thanksgiving episode of a TV show?

4. Your turn! If you've got a question for your fellow _flossers, ask away in the #4 slot. Have a great weekend!

And consider picking up a copy of our new board game, JaLink!
