When my son was little, he would buckle his "belt -seat." And things would be "round side up" (upside down) And when he was pokey, I told him to shake a leg! So, he did. Lifted up his foot and wiggled it.

My daughter called food "gobbin" for the longest time. No idea where that came from.

Some of my school folks state they can get very "flustrated". One also will describe consistantly untruthful kids as "chronological liars". I give him grief, both his parents are educators!

Disrespectful is a word, but it is an adjective, so it has no past, present, or future tense either.
thanks, i never knew that, although i think that i've ever said disrepect without the ful.

It was exactly like that in the 70's when I lived there. They also think of that area as the only place in the world that can be called "The Bay Area". Ask a San Francisco resident on vacation in Japan and they'll just say "Oh, I live in the Bay Area in the USA". I heard one do that recently here in Florida. I asked him which bay area. He got all weirded out about it and told me "There's really only ONE real Bay Area in the USA.
