This is my mom group, and they are awesome. Unfortunately, most of them live in different states, which makes playdates difficult, so we spend a lot of time on email. Anyway, I’ve mentioned all of them before, but if you don’t know who they are, you should check out their super-genius sites — Eden is at Fussy, Heather is at Dooce, Melissa is at Suburban Bliss, and Alice is at Finslippy. They will rock you.
Alice, over at Finslippy, just posted about one of my very favorite prompts fromNo One Cares What You Had for Lunch. It’s about bringing back beloved words that no one uses any more. A few of my favorites pulled from her comments section:
Cinchy, meaning easy to do. Fie as a curse word. “I’m all sixes and sevens,” meaning “off my game.” Poppycock, as an expression of disbelief. “I’ve got a hitch in my git-along,” meaning “I feel stiff.” Zozzled, meaning drunk.
