    Becept (combination of besides and except) “I like all kinds of cereal becept this one.”

    Moinnamafomation – (more information) The dialogue usually goes like this:
    Daddy: “Kendall, finish your sandwhich.”
    Kendall: “Daddy, I have moinnamafomation. . . I’m full.”

    It has taken months to be able to properly interpret and transcribe this phrase!!!


  2. Okay, you’ve got me going now:

    We use “becept or bucept” at my house,too- who knew it was universal?

    Finking: To think, As Brady explains, you know, “finking with my head”

    Mistappeared or Jistappeared: Magically gone, disappeared. Frequently used in pretend magic shows or when food that wasn’t eaten but was fed to the dog is no longer on the plate.

    And we too glorify McDonald’s: ours is HotDonald’s – how about that?

    So fun to share – thanks!


  3. we used thunk:
    thunk: (v) to use the heel and thumb of any given hand in a downward motion upon the crown of a head. much like a bass player would slap a string. used in diciplinary manner. named after the sound it makes upon an empty head of a minor. it was used well into my twenties.
