Nikki came up with a GREAT topic for this Fun Monday! She wanted to know of a "family word" that we had invented and used...or a great green beer story in honor of St. Paddy's day.
As you might suspect from my recent absence from the blogosphere, Tiggerlane has been terribly busy and has writer's block. Not from lack of anything to say, but from sheer exhaustion. And beer. HA!
I DID think of a word, though - and it was coined by a dear family friend. "Gonosyphaherpalese" is a word we use...can you guess what for? Teehee! Not that anyone in my family has an STD, but it's a cute term that our friend used to describe someone he knew who knew a friend...well, you get the gist. So, anytime The Offspring wants to discuss sexual matters, we have to throw in the possibility of contracting "gonospyhaherpalese" as a risk factor - which seems to cover all the bases!
And the green beer story? Kinda sad, actually. Had a friend, who just last year, came over to have a green beer for the holiday. Said friend was not supposed to be drinking, due to some legal issues, unbeknownst to me. Another friend took his photo with me and our green beers, and guess where it ended up? Myspace. Nothing bad for me, but for him? Not so good. All is well now, but remember: it is the age of technology - be careful! Assume every photo of you will be distributed on the 'net!
Thank goodness the technology was not as advanced when I went to college! Now go visit all the other participants this fine Fun Monday!
