My dad's nicknames for people and things

My dad has a fantastic ability to give people nicknames that stuck. And to coin alternate words for things.

  • tissue -- "hornblowers"
  • slippers -- "slinkers"
  • peanut butter -- "peenter bunter"
  • my uncle Michael -- "Ralphie"
  • my aunt Joanne -- "Dodo"
  • my mom -- "Choofie" and "Magenta"
  • me -- "Weezer" and sometimes, "Botch" - the latter because the sound made me laugh as a baby
