What Do You Call It?

I mentioned in another post that in my family we have always called "Chloroseptic" (throat spray) the "green stuff." We have called it that for so long that when they came out with cherry flavored Chloroseptic, we decided to try "the red green stuff!" So, is there a product that you have an unusual name for? Share!

No, but the red green stuff reminds me of a man who used to be the keeper of the koi at a temple in Hawaii. He really knew those fish and could talk to them. Then we were getting ready to visit the temple, and our friend said, "The old man died. Now there is a New Old Man." For all eternity this man will be in all of our minds, "The New Old Man."

I can't post the actual names that we call these things because the automated word cencor will catch it, but we call sweet and low "the pink s**t, splenda is the yellow s**t, and the blue s**t is nutrasweet I think.

I used to have a Border Collie named "Bear" and would occasionally babysit for a youngun who was in that 'pre-talking' phase. He loved the dog and, as soon as he got to my place, began to call out for "Oophah" (his imitation of the sound Bear made when he barked... like 'woof woof'). It was really cute and contageous. Others soon began to imitate it and eventually Bear had two names.

I went into the local convenience store one day and the girl working there was wearing her big, fuzzy slippers! Her name was Brandi...so from that point on, hubby and I call slippers "brandies."

When my grandchildren get constipated I tell them "Well I guess it's time for grandma to drag out that white liquid chalk", (Milk Of Magnesia). They don't like it but it always works.
