I have this friend, this is where you probably think, yea right, a friend. Anyway, I really do have this friend who lives in Pennsylvania (I have no idea of that is relevant) but she calls ALL NUTS peanuts. I can’t tell you how much this both bothered me and cracked me up, she would confuse me every time. We used to do a huge Christmas cookie baking extravaganza every year and when going through the list…you guessed it, I wanted pecans and she always called them peanuts! (If you are reading this, you know I love you Miss K!)
Xerox, jello, coke, bugs, damn dog, freakin kid – these are names I can understand as universal catch-alls, not peanut! 🙂 My neighbor said her friend calls every soda a ‘coke’ which makes her laugh. I get that if it is actually a dark cola soda, but not a sprite or something. Do you have any word you use like that? Any word your friend or family uses to explain something that drives you crazy?
