The NutHatch Dictionary

Welcome to The NutHatch Dictionary!

Hopefully a helpful tool for understanding some of the words and phrases that we use regularly in our Family. An explanation of the “In’s and Ism’s” .  Our very own Secret Squirrel language.  Kind of like code.

If you ever feel you need to have the definition of an unfamiliar word used on this blob,  just leave a comment and I will be more than happy to assist you! I have tried my best to put things in alphabetical order. But I might make a mistake now and then.

Ba-Dult- When we lived at our previous house, they had a neighborhood pool. The last 15 minutes of the hour, the lifeguards blew the whistle and all the kids had to get out of the water for adult swim. Which our children always called ba-dult swim. They are now almost ba-dults themselves.

BAMBO!- A word of exclamation! Honey’s word of choice, said loudly. Example: I was looking all over for that hammer, and then, BAMBO!, there it was!

Biscuit-us– A  word for overweight, that is supposedly not offensive. It’s like when you peel the paper off of a can of biscuits and it POPS? That is “biscuit-us. Overstuffed, fluffy, I guess. Example: I ate too much, I’m feeling biscuit-us.

blob- real word; blog. Created by Mrs. Schmenkman’s Mother, EEEK. Example: The NutHatch Dictionary is a new page on my blob!

Bunnies-A word used to describe a very sweet man. Example: Mousey is looking for a Bunny to marry when she is old enough to do so. She says her Dad and her Grandpa are Bunnies.

CHERYL! I.Do.Not.Care.- Usually used to tell someone that I cannot comprehend any of the subject that they are trying to tell me about. Usually related to sports, or fishing, or ANYTHING that I don’t care about. Stolen from the movie “Remember The Titans”, when Cheryl, the tomboy daughter of one coach, was sharing too much information about the football plays, to the accessorizing daughter of the other coach. Her reply was “CHERYL! I.DO.NOTCARE.! My feelings, EXACTLY!

Coo-Pin- Real word: coupon. Just a funny, doesn’t have a real origin.

Dope-O, or it’s angry older brother, Dope-O-Head- Another Honey-ism. A name of derision. OR, could be a term of endearment.  Example- What do you think you’re doing Dope-O-Head????

Dry as a bug’s hull- Parched or thirsty. Stolen from the sermon of an old timey Baptist preacher, A.V. Henderson. Example: Give me a drink of your water, I’m dry as a bug’s hull!

ESKADA!!!!-a Honey word of danger, alarm or any other excitement.    Example: ESKADA! Watch my waterglass on the floor!

Fitchin’- the way our family says fishing. I don’t have any idea where it came from.

Get my wig on straight– Go and get ready to go somewhere. Lifted from a Paul McCartney and Wings song. I think it was called Rock Show. At the very end of the song he starts talking and he says something like “come on Mama, get your wig on straight, can’t be late. We gotta date”

Goggle that blob– real saying; Google something. Another masterpiece from Mrs. Schmenkman’s Mother EEEK. Example: I’m not exactly sure what it means, so I’m gonna goggle that blob.

I got the cute Dr.- phrase stolen from an episode of “House”. A symptom of a patients disease caused her to repeat herself. She said this phrase several times. This is something that we say to each other when someone repeats themselves. Usually said by children to their aging parents. Example: Parent says, “Are you eating dinner here tonight?” Child replies, “Yes”. Half an hour later Parent asks, “Are you eating dinner here tonight?” Child answers “I’ve got the cute Dr

Joofered- A word Honey made up, generally used to say something is messed up, broken, bungled or otherwise imperfect. Example: We are going to need a new driveway, the plumbers joofered  the old one up pretty bad driving the digger thingy on it. OR, HEY,  I’m working on that, don’t joofer it up!

Potato Clothes- Clothes you change into when lounging in your home. Jammies or sweats.

pull(or push) the door to- push the door to the frame, without actually shutting it. Example: Just pull the door to, I don’t want to lock the cats in here.

 schnibble– Just a little, usually pertaining to food. Stolen from Mrs. Schmenkman. Example:  I’m not really hungry, I’ll just have a schnibble.

‘Tater up- The act of putting on Potato Clothes. As in “I’m going to ‘Tater Up before we watch that movie”.

yawn’t to?- Honey’s imitation of a southern expression for “do you want to?”
