Kevisms

It's a KEVISM... it means, what it meansI'm sure just about every family has their own private language that only they understand. Goofy little words in place of real words, that just seem to stick? Sound familiar at all? Our family is like that too, and the biggest source of those goofy little words is none other than Kevin. He has so many, we've all lost track. Not only that, he comes up with new ones all the time and even modifies older ones. Keeping up is optional, but laughing about them is pretty much a given.

I've been wanting to do this for quite some time but just keep getting sidetracked. Recently though, when he pulled a Yiddle Dit and it made me laugh all the way to the store and back, I decided it was time. What makes these words so funny is, they orginally meant one thing, but they change all the time to mean whatever works at the moment. For example, Yiddle Dit can mean "stop mumbling" or it can mean "where in the world did those kids put the broom this time?" Spelks can mean thank you, or your welcome, and Skeez can mean hello, goodbye, or get lost! Fadduhlahbookie has been used more than a few times when something on the stove is boiling over, or the dog just used the carpet again for a potty. They're great multi-purpose words to use when nothing else works, or just because you feel like being silly. The great thing about them is YOU get to decide what they mean for yourself.

So, enjoy the new line of Kevisms... They Mean, what they mean. (I'll be adding to this line VERY soon, as we have a HUGE collection of Kevisms in our family.)



Have a fantastically wonderful day!
