Make Up A Funny Word!

18 posts in this topic

Mommida brought up some old memories of mine of when my cousin and I use to stay up all night making up funny words whenever we got together. I was wondering if anyone else here could be creative enough to do that (it's been years for me... :rolleyes: ) The 3 that I remember the most were:

Rimbobadoobee

Clibberdipple

Terapoothamite

Unfortunately, it may not be quite as funny typed out as spoken, but I thought we might give it a try. :P

Glutiginous

Glutenateor

My son used to call cookies " coochies"

A " Goo rag" - the cloth diaper you put on shoulder so a baby can " goo" on it.

My family used to add the suffix -age on to a lot of words, ala "drainage".

If it's snowing, there's a lot of snowage going on.

I got sick at the local pizza joint because there was a lot of glutenage in the air.

I'm having trouble healing because there is so much cornage in our food supply.

I have kept my sanity through all of this because of all the supportage you folks on the forum have given me.

Ok, maybe it's not so funny, but it used to crack my family up. Sometimes there was so much laughage going on it was hard to breathe.

Husband and 6 year old: yogrit = yogurt

My 6 year old when he was a toddler: garjib = garbage he was facinated with the garbage man and the garbage can. He still likes to pick up random "stuff" when we are out and about.

My 10 year old when he was in the 1st grade: N = Ian There was a new kid that came and he came home and told me there was a new kid in his class and his name was N. I asked him if the kid's name maybe was Ian. He was so insistant that his name was N because that is what his teacher said. I realized that the teacher was saying Ian, but with her accent he heard it as "N".

Me messing up: heart arrest = combination of heart attact and cardiac arrest(I guess I was tired)

Here are some I hear a lot at work:

diarearer = diarrhea

vomiking = vomiting

testes(not the male appendage :blink::lol: but pronounce the "es" like in houses) = tests

MIR scan = MRI scan

mammieogram = mammogram

Not exactly 'making up new words' but I have had a few giggles lately with my 9y/o sons interpretation of song lyrics.

"Gotye" has a song titled 'Somebody that I use to know' which is one of my favourites at the moment.

http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/gotye/somebodythatiusedtoknow.html Look it up on youtube great video & interesting song.

When it comes on the radio Gotye sings 'But you didn't have to cut me off' but my Liam sings "you didn't have to cut me up" and does all the hand actions of chopping off my arm. :blink::lol:

    • Need help with "positive" blood test results
      You'll want to keep an eye on all your vitamin levels, as absorption problems are quite common with gastritis. You've probably already looked it up, but this is the WebMD page on gastritis. http://www.webmd.com/digestive-disorders/digestive-diseases-gastritis  It's not the best article as they mention 'treating' it with antacids which is pretty much the opposite of helpful. (https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2002/01/020115074441.htm) If the medication they were going to prescribe is an antibiotic, you might want to reconsider. If you have H. pylori, an antibiotic is the only sure way to get rid of it. If you don't get rid of the bacteria, the B12 deficiency will worsen.

      Yes, ATTITUDE, in all caps, and i am in the field of health care...!
    • TTg IAG > 100 but also Hasimoto's
      Thanks for pointing all that out Gemini! I look forward to finally getting off gluten for good to see how much everything changes.  I never thought about the absorption of my synthroid with all my other issues.  I just see my primary dr. for all my thyroid, perhaps I will ask for a referral to an endo dr for further evaluation and treatment.  Thanks for all the information! 
    • Gluten And Vertigo
      Christiana, I just felt to look at the site. I thought I had clicked to get email alerts. But, actually my email has been 'fritzing' sort of.  Thank you for your note. It is important for my diagnosis. I was diagnosed with chondritis of the collar bone a few months before the fall that resulted in the immobile right arm. The osteo surgeon gave me a cortosol shot that helped a lot. That MRI showed a rotator cuff tear nearly 2/3 thru the strip of tissue that connects the muscle tissue to the bone and makes the shoulder 'rotate' in place.  That was almost a year ago now. I have been learning to be very very mindful about how I use that arm, when I reach, carefully, how I rest it and sleep position. Interesting that I did see a search answer that said ' they are saying now that there could be a connection btn rotator cuff tear and inflammed collar bone. My primary doctor also said I could have an inflammed chest wall that resulted in the chondritis. I remembered that word from a child's diagnosis years ago. That was in his knees and was treated by this same osteo surgeon, by casting the legs over summer holiday, which ended in healed x-rays. That was osteo chondritis desicans. He said then, 'if it is horses, we would have to shoot them.'  I tried to get a blood test three weeks ago for the same antibody we were treating that child with thru his then pediatritian, for rheumatoid antibodies/ recurring strep throat. I had gotten a 'sort of' diagnosis, or agreement from that primary care doctor, allowing me to get the recommended antibiotics (one of the few treatments that it is allowed, because of the need to keep the hearing). But, his new nurse did not relay the request properly. I hate doctor office politics. I hope this newbie is not going to mess with this doctor's little family as well. Last month when researching Meniere's one of the things listed about it was that autoimmune disease is connected to it also. I was hurt before the falls and the inflammation and the collar bone chondritis and the rotator cuff tear. I was very very concerned about it setting off some kind of autoimmune inflammation reaction or worse that can happen when tissue cells are being repaired rapidly and it felt like lots of toxins were being cleansed and processed over a period of many months. The only similar feeling I have ever experienced was when I had a 'deep tissue massage' to release and cleanse a cortisol 'hump' I had after a prolonged period of high family stress situation. Right now, my primary (an O.D. , or osteopath) is working with me. There are two ENTs in this area he offered for Meniere's and has given me Physical Therapy at his complex for Balance Therapy. It is great that that therapist has a MIL that is also dealing with Meniere's and getting exercises from a major hospital complex in the city. I was able to give her some celiac's diagnosis information. Sounded like her MIL and her son were likely to be candidates.  I did not know what the definition was of the term 'vestibular' as in vestibular migraine, another connection to Meniere's. I just typed www.bing.com and then typed 'definition of vestibular.' That had information about the connections btn hearing and sitting positions. I will look up costochondritis. Thank you, again. Best wishes, Anne
    • What Are Your Brands & Flavors Of Gluten Free Ice Cream ?
      I don't worry about the same facility, but I check if it is on the same lines. I think it is usually a good idea to find out if things are made on shared lines. And if they are made on the same line as gluten-containing products how good is the cleaning in between? Chocolate is a good example of this. For example, I contacted a company whose chocolate I used to eat before being diagnosed and they outright told me they are not good about cleaning on shared lines and it is not safe for allergies or celiac. I have had this response from other companies as well (especially when it comes to chocolate sadly). I think this is why Godiva is not safe. Its just a good idea to check.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
