The Lexicon - Final Installment
As always, here are Parts One, Two, Three, Four and Five. And, we're tasking ourselves with compiling them all and putting them together into the KDR (KidLand Desk Reference) to go with the MDR. We plan to have it done by the end of the week, which means it might get done by Christmas. Unless Kate puts it on her Tuesday List...then it'll totally happen.
Unless Lydia dares her to fix her drippy kitchen sink. Which DID happen. Lydia is writing all about it. It basically boils down to these important points: Kate is super handy with tools, Kate is awesome. Kate didn't get a weird haircut. You'll have to wait and find out if the sink is still drippy. Which is also totally possible.
THE FINAL INSTALLMENT:
Monkey Nuts: (verb): act of standing at the kitchen island putting a sandwich, fruit and chips into a bag for work, to be eaten during the midday hour; in the human world, known as "making lunch"
Dagot: (verb) to leave something behind when departing a location, usually a lunch box, patrol belt, book, or, for the maternal figures, one of the children, i.e. "*()@#* I dagot to bring the baby!"
Hangabur: (noun) a yummy, juicy grilled beef sandwich; also, a hot mess of a mom the morning after too many glasses from the T-Box.
Aliens: (noun) official vehicle used to transport injured people, i.e. "My baby brother fell and the blood was coming out of his head and the Aliens came and got him"; usually accompanied by some sort of flier fwuck, fly f**k, or, in Kate's house, a Big DooDah.
Manna: (noun) Bananas that fell from the sky to feed the Israelites in the desert in the Old Testament; as in, heavenly manna.
Gashole: (noun) The hole in your car where gas goes in. As in, "Mommy, I love washing your car with Daddy. Look how clean the gashole is! I love a clean gashole."
