My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

Hmm...okay, I'll bite. ;o)

Trehala - noun, from "tre" for three, and "hala", ghetto slang for holler.

Usage: That special sauce was so good, Gator gives it a trehala - hala hala hala!

Ordure- noun.

Usage: Effeminate French waiter asked, "Madam, may I take your ordure?"

BTW, how is the special sauce working out?

New post up, finally!

Love and hugs,

Diane

I'm too bummed to play this week but I loved the guesses that other people have made this week. I was thinking the same thing about "trehala" as Diane!
