NEW WORD WEDNESDAY

Well- this MIGHT sound like a 
COMMON WORD 
to you.

But-it can cause some consternation...
especially if you live in the south and 
hear a sentence that sounds like this:
SweetCheeks was fond of saying:

Let's go ride on 
THE ALLEYGATOR!
WHAT?
You want to ride on the ALLEYGATOR?
Where IS the ALLEYGATOR?

You know where it is, Nana!
It's at the STORE!
What? What Store?

I dunno.
You can ride it at the 
HOSPITAL, too!

Know where this is headed?
Well-here you are----
HERE IS THE 
ALLEYGATOR!

Yes-Yes-
That is a whole lot better than trying to ride one of
THESE SUCKERS!
So- Just this once I am going to 
KEEP MY BIG MOUTH SHUT
and keep my comment to myself....
but feel free to add YOURS!

So-next time you are by an
ALLEYGATOR
I dare you to say to someone:
I'll hold the
ALLEYGATOR for you while you get on!
Imagine the looks you will get!

your photo name

  3. Oh, no, you don't! Not making any comments about the lady (ahem) astride another sort of alleygator. At first, I thought that an alleygator referred to all those times you meet an alligator in an alley. So glad THAT wasn't it. That child has always been a cutie patootie.

  4. That is one ride where it is better to be in the back.

  16. Ok, I didn't see that one coming! Adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Haha! I just love kids! They say the cutest things. Now - go ride that alligator!!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. My comment... That ALLEYGATOR couldn't move, if it wanted to!!!!!! It's back side is being squashed into the ground!!!!!

    Hehhhhhhhhh....

  19. As one who IS from the south AND spends summers at her lakehouse, where back in the swamps on any given day....we can see alleygators swimming past!.....you should bring that girl to visit. We could take her on a real ride and she'd never have to get outa the boat!!!! Or push a button!!!! This made me laugh this morning!

    ReplyDelete
  20. She's so danged cute I wanna kiss her cheeks off.

    OK - a couple from my past. My youngest called cement (concrete) conCREEK. And seagulls were SEAGLES. My eldest had a friend who called
    geraniums DEARaniums. Hubs pronounces antella with the accent on the first syllable ANTenna (makes me giggle and tease way too much haha,) and my oldest sister calls a refrigerator a FIDGErator- and she calls a chiminey a CHIMLEE (I know, she's in her 60s and will never learn. She getsit honestly, my father used to call a Toyota truck a TYota.

    But seriously alleygator wins the prize, seagles gets second.

    Hugs and such fond memories,

    Michele

  26. Leave to a precious child to keep you on your toes. That lady has a problem to sit on that thing.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm on that will always take a dare so i'll be saying it the next time I'm in an alligator! Children always speak their minds so innocently and with great job. My neice would say "all you need to is Ass me and I'd do i!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Great word for elevator, Sweet Cheeks! And is that a coin operated alligator at Walmart? Sorry, I could not hold my thought, Diana. Linda@Wetcreek Blog

  29. Ha ha. That was funny. Never heard of that word before:)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Wonderful new word Wednesday. Think I'll leave the alleygator rides to others. Lol!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Ha! That word was already in my lexicon! Lol When our son was a wee little one, that what he called them too. I'll not comment on the alligator rider.

    ReplyDelete
  32. How cute! I really had no idea what she was talking about until you cleared up the confusion. LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh too funny, Diana. I would have never thought until I came to the end of the post that she was referring to an elevator. And you know it caught my attention right away when you mentioned ALLEYgator hehehe. That SweetCheeks is a keeper.

    love, ~Sheri

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oh that is too funny Diana! I love the little made up words they come up with. My Michael would call a helicopter a "Hopter-copter". LOL I still call them hopter-copters when he is around. So cute. (Your little sweet cheeck is just adorable too!)

  37. Ha that was a new one to me! I'll keep to riding the alleygator the other one ouch, that's crazy!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh, she is just too adorable, isn't she? Love her little outfit <3 That poor alligator.....xo K

    ReplyDelete
  39. It would start an interesting conversation there with everyone confined together, wouldn't it? Maybe she'll be like my husband who still says herricanes instead of hurricanes. And Space Book instead of Facebook, and Tweeters instead of Harris Teeters!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Ha! My youngest used to call them that! I couldn't bear to correct her, it was so cute:) She eventually figured out the right word. Those little voices and their hilarious word mistakes are so precious and sweet. Thanks for sharing and bringing back that sweet memory.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Love them....and all the neat ways they have of calling things what they think they hear.
    Precious!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Diana, Sweet cheeks is just such a comedian! I have to tell you that about ten years ago, we went on a tour of the everglades and I actually held a baby alligator....not alleygator. No comments on the poor creature with the gal on its back...just figure the alligator would need a chiropractor to adjust its back. Hope all is back to normal for yourself, wait-who am I kidding, back to normal???LOL.
    Hugs, Noreen

  43. I will try that.

  44. Never would have guessed that one...Did you find that lady at Wallmart??

    ReplyDelete
  45. LOL My in-laws once owned a house that had an elevator and my son around 4 or 5 at the time and he loved riding in it, He called it a helinator.

    ReplyDelete
  46. She has always had a way with words---Art Linkletter would have loved her. Remember him?

    Got caught up a bit...love the 60's hairstyles and I do remember my sisters having some of those "do's" I was a a 70's 'Love Child', and that was pretty maintenance free; straight, parted down the middle!!

    Love the communion pictures of Sweet Cheeks. God bless her.

    I sent you an email-I've had a hard time getting to you, I think.

  59. How adorable SweetCheeks looks on that photo! They are all growing up so fast. It was so cute the way she used to talk! You must miss that but I would think that every stage they go through brings its own blessings!
