Friday Feast #132


Where on your body do you have a scar, and what caused it?

I have more that “a” scar and I’m not telling…
If I told you then I’d have to kill you. …nuff said


What is something that has happened to you that you would consider a miracle?

My children are my miracles.


Name a television personality who really gets on your nerves.

Tele must be a big thing. It seems every Feast has a television question. I can’t answer. I don’t watch it.

Portata Principale
What was a funny word you said as a child (such as "pasketti" for "spaghetti")?

You would have to ask my parents. I only know the funny words from my own children and younger siblings. I laugh so hard at the convoluted words. It is a great joy for me.
My sister Laura was “Wawa” and then “Lawa.”
My little brother Tim saw bird’s “flooshing” by the window.
When my son was in Kindergarten he told me a boy was really sick with, “Dubayou Monomia” his face was full of seriousness and concern when he said it.
My daughter comes up with them daily. McDonalds is “MaryDolls”, Burger king is “Burberking”, and she asks for a “hangabur.” I could go on with this


Fill in the blank: I have always thought ______ was ______.

I miss some very special people.
Although they are gone they will remain forever with me in all of my fondest memories. I shall never forget the wonderful experience of sharing my life with theirs. Rest in Peace Dear Ones.

I have always thought my sister Sruti’s soul was beyond special. You could actually feel this strong and powerful energy from being around her. I was in awe and captivated by her. A feeling of a great peace surrounded her like an energy field. It is very difficult to describe. She loved rainbows. I feel her energy every single time I see one, my heart fills with warmth and I smile.

I have always thought Orville was the best friend I ever had.

I have always thought my Grandma was funny.

I have always thought my Grandpa was larger than life.

I have always thought Ron was a good man.

I have always thought John was a great friend.

I have always thought Tory was a special and beautiful little girl.

I had an “afterism” on the Main Course.
How about a little regurgitation after desert?
Or maybe I will pull that dinner plate back because I see a little clump of crab meat I missed.

My son always said “flumb” instead of thumb.

It was so cute that I adopted the word and I always said “flumb” when referring to my thumb.

Joe was in first grade and I got called in to the school. I had to meet with a speech teacher. I was informed that my son was unable to say the letters “th” and that he would need to be enrolled in speech therapy.

I called Joe over in front of the woman and I told him to say this, Joe said “this”, then I told him to say that and he said “that” then I told him to say Thursday and he said “Thursday”. Then I said say thumb and he held up his thumb and belted out “Flumb!”….

I will never forget that moment. The teachers name was Judy. She actually wrapped her arms around her stomach and doubled over from laughing so hard.

I explained how I always used the word and apologized for messing up my child…. I think it was stupid parent day…

I used to say 'uni' instead of banana, and 'cutser' instead of scissors. To this day people in my family use my substitute cute words. It's been 37-1/2 years ......

I loved the story about your son and the school teacher. It reminds me of the time I got called to the school because my daughter said she needed to go to the "Angry Chair" and the teachers thought we were beating her or something when in reality the "Angry Chair" is what we called the toilet and she just had to poop.

FLUMB...that is hysterical! I can only imagine the laughter in that room.

When my daughter was little she was yelling in the back seat of the car "I wann go was-a-nut!" We had no idea what the heck she was trying to say. We kept asking her different questions about was-a-nut and it just made her angry. It turns out she wanted to go to a restaurant. Restaurant....why did it take us so long to figure out that one?

Thanks for sharing your wonderful dessert with us. Wonderful memories!

"Flumb" is so cute! A friend of mine has a son who would say, "hangaburger" instead of hamburger. He *INSISTED* it was "hangaburger". Too cute.

Happy Friday. :)

I loved your comment about "don't watch tv" and don't want to. Hooray for you! I think we're in the minority there.

Hi Raggedy ~~Loved your Feast answers and sorry for your losses. Thank God for our wonderful memories, they do help. My elest son used to say Hopticopter for helicopter. and I've called them that ever since. Loved to joke about Who is doing the work?
Thank you for your visits and kind words. Have been busy and it has been so hot, I feel a bit knocked out, but a little cooler today will help. I'm so glad that your Dad read to you, and your daughter, and
sounds as though he enjoyed it changing voices etc. Take care, my
dear friend. Love, Merle.

What a feast, Raggedy! Satellite/Cable TV has some advantages. On the other hand, I'm with you on network TV - it's mindless. Marshall McLuhan nailed it when he shared the observation, "Mud sometimes gives the illusion of depth." Have a great weekend!! :)

I LOVE that flumb story. How sweet. My oldes is 2.5 and she calls coats her "life jacket" - it stems from her favorite show of Dora the Explorer. I call them life jackets now too. :)

They make me laugh every day too.

Great Feast!

nice post. When I was young I couldn't say 'Mother' I said munner instead, so everafter she was munner.

My son saw the Bud Light commercials and thought they were saying Bug light. He also used to say Wisconsend.

Sorry for your losses. It is nice that you honor them so . . .
