Great Yiddish Word

2011-05-23

I’m sitting at my computer. I just ate a candy bar that is parading as a granola bar.  (It’s covered with chocolate and has peanuts . . . not much different that a Snickers.) It’s just a little nosh to quell my grumbling stomach until lunch time. Nosh. What a great Yiddish word.  As a [...]…

2011-02-22

When I was in school and had to write papers, I dreaded getting them back.  More red dripped from them than from a vampire’s teeth.  It seemed that my teachers were so captuous. (Had I known that word back then, I might have said something to my teachers like, “Stop being so captuous, you ninny.” [...]…
