NSFW I just used the word “ladyboner” but I seriously doubt that I’m the first one to do that.

My son created his first portmanteau this weekend.

“Mama… this stuff smells… finky…”

Funny and stinky. The perfect description for sauteed spinach, no?

My invention: slarved (sleep + starved) – for when I’m extremely tired after an all-nighter.

I’ve started saying “supercoolandtrendy” just lately, for reasons currently unknown.
My kids still say “beast” for anything that’s cool/brill.

Also, in my office we’ve started referring to each other as “hangry” when it’s seriously time for some lunch, lest one’s head is forcibly removed out of sheer annoyance.

I hated spinach as a kid. Turns out I like it – raw. In a salad. Had my mother not cooked it – I would’ve been a fucking popeye.

Reminder: Fluunking (Fluthering while drunk) is MINE! I am so flunking now.

Also NSFW – “szarbutzel” pronounced sÉ‘-boots-sell has come to be a codeword for sex around here….
