Funny Words – Stream of Consciousness Saturday


Thanks for hosting the SOCS, Linda! To join in and also see other entries, click the above link.


Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “a phrase you grew up with.” Include in your post a phrase your mom/dad/grandparent/sibling used all the time when you were growing up, or just write whatever inspires you based on that phrase. Enjoy!


I’ve been thinking it seems for a long time on this question. I basically can’t think of any specific phrases. I just remember a few words they pronounced funny.

We were a very mild family. No one yelled or got mad at anyone. My sister and I were good kids and hardly ever got scolded or got a punishment. So, no phrases remembered of that.

A few funny pronounced words were:

Bat tree – for battery (mom)

Car ma nex – for the lip balm Carmex (mom)

‘The’ K-Mark, ‘The Wal-Mark’ ( mom)

Fa- jeeters – for fajitas (dad)

En chill lollies – for enchiladas (dad)

Jenny’s Rule – for as a general rule (granny)

I always wondered who Jenny was! haha

Must be made of Gold – high priced yard sale items (mom)


Well, that’s all for now. Have a great weekend. 🙂


Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️

    • Thanks, Sadje! I think you’re right about a lot of words. haha, then the kids roll their eyes at the grown ups using their words!
      For these and a lot of words we say here in the family, being southern and Texan, we do say words funny a lot of the time. I love how words are different in different parts of the US and other countries. 🙂
