What's Your Word?

I think I should have been an inventor. I have always had lots of ideas about new products and gadgets, etc, the problem is I don't know how to put anything together nor do I have the business acumen to get any of these ideas rolling. So, I just let these ideas and inventions rot away in my brain.

I'm a pretty good inventor of words as well. I'm sure this is something we all do, you know, in a moment of frustration or anger, you invent words. Don't you? Perhaps this is just a Mormon thing, since we are encouraged to avoid profanity, and because of such, we are very creative in finding alternative methods to express our feelings.

I'll have to admit, I think I've found a winner. My word is schmuckamapoopoo. For some reason, one day it just came out. It's like it was fate or something. I'm hoping that this word catches on and can one day make it into the dictionary when they do their yearly updates. If "F-bomb" can make it, I think schmuckamapoopoo has a very legitimate shot. Just to make sure I wasn't copying someone else's word, I did a Google search and this is what displayed:

Your search - schmuckamapoopoo - did not match any documents.

So here's my question: What words have you invented?

Many years ago I started using the word "Smakadutyhahas" in reference to money. Not sure why.

Though we're not LDS, I was raised in a faithful Christian home, and we were always encouraged not to use profanity. In middle school, I started saying "shoebunny" whenever I did something like, say, stubbed my toe, or tripped (which happened more often than I care to admit).

As you say, if the f-bomb, and "muggle" can make it into the dictionary, why not your word? :)

Mike, I'd love to hear you use that word in a sentence. Maybe one day!

Katie, I love the tender use of shoebunny, classic!
