NEW WORD WEDNESDAY - #3

Our new word today is brought to us by
SWEET CHEEKS!

She has always had a whole 
repertoire of her 
OWN WORDS
that she developed as she 
learned to talk.
Your new word today is
HORRUNGUS!

Here is how it is pronounced
HOR-EE-UNGUS

HORRUNGUS is composed of two words:
Horrid & Humongous.
This is an example of something
HORRUNGUS!
Hmmmm....Kinda looks like 
MyHero when he gets up in the morning.
Of course, that would be 
BEFORE COFFEE!

Here is what 
HORRUNGUS
looks like at Walmart!
Although this may just be more
HORRID
but is not a comment on size...
face cut off to protect the guilty
As usual, your mission for the week
is to be able to use
HORRUNGUS
at least once this week.

And you can't use Walmart, either,
I already did!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

your photo name

Toooooo Cute!!

Bethany Carson said...

I like that word! Good invention, Sweet Cheeks!

Liz@ Infuse With Liz said...

Cute- and I understand this language as I've been known to do this myself! That photo of the gal at WalMart is beyond words!

Debbie said...

Ya gotta love Sweet Cheeks. She says it like it is!

Susie said...

Diana, You know Walmart has the best choices in Horrungus around.... next place would be Gas America service stations.. They come out with a soda that takes two hands and some times the crook of their arms, cigarettes and scratch off tickets. Ewwwe. I always say, if your soda take two hands to carry, you may be drinking too much soda. LOL. Some people need a list of priorities, I guess. I am glad you posted about sweet cheeks....I have missed her. Have fun today, xoxo,Susie

that child has an amazing imagination!

Nancy's Notes said...

Oh Sweet Cheeks is a clever one! That word can be used at so many places, won't mention!! :)

Starting Over, Accepting Changes - Maybe said...

Due to the weather, I had a horrungus headache yesterday.

Barbara @ 21 Rosemary Lane said...

Oh how cute Diana. I love the made up words a phrases kids come up with. I remember when Grace called cheerleaders "team girls" and Michael would refer to the cashier at the grocery store the "paying station". So wonderful how their little miinds work.
Hope you are enjoying a beautiful spring day!
XO Barbara

Penny @ Penny's Vintage Home said...

I'll have some fun using that word on my grand daughter....lol!

Hartwood Roses said...

This is a great one! (I'm pleading the Fifth on the Walmart thing. To be honest, the worst I've done there is to run to pick up a necessary thing or two while wearing dirty gardening clothes. Even then, I wasn't the worst dressed person in the place.)

Row homes and Cobblestones said...

Diana,
I love SweetCheeks word! But with the Walmart photo I'm just wordless! I guess in her world no mirrors exist!

Jettie said...

Horrungus, that woman poll dancing.

Vee said...

Great new word! Well done, Sweet Cheeks! Now just when I am wondering WHAT Wal*Mart? Where?! I am remembering a group of young people who looked stoned or emaciated and then we realized that they were dressed in wild animal skins. I kid you not. When we went outside, we saw one of the young men seated on the ground leaning against the building wearing antlers! If I had a camera, I might have taken a photo. Apparently they were living in the woods and were getting pretty hungry, not to mention dirty. We did consider calling the police because those kids needed an intervention. Oh my! Now that's another story I've not told.

Linda said...

Jalen and I don't make up words....but we agree that we can be goofy at times and that is good. I'll have to think for a bit on HORRUNGUS. I am off to grandparents day at his school this morning.

Nellie said...

That's a super word from Sweet Cheeks! I'd say it suits several occasions.😉xo Nellie

Karen said...

Ha! Funny!

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

Love this word! It really should be added to the dictionary, as I can think of many times I could have used it. :) Good job, Sweet Cheeks!

Tete said...

Love the word! I have a pregnant kitty with a belly so horrungus! She is going to pop anytime now.

Betsy@ coastal-colors said...

What a great word! Love Sweet Cheeks and her fantastic wit and imagination! So happy you used Walmart for all of us! Sometimes I just say, "what were they thinking?"- or maybe not thinking!

Kimberly~Nutbrown Cottage said...

Ugh! That last picture ruined my appetite! Why do people go out in public like that?? Do they not have mirrors in their homes??

tammy j said...

boy!
you can tell when she's feeling GOOD! her little face just shines.
and yes.
i will dutifully use that wonderful word. the beep beep beep of a backing up truck up on the highway ALL day as they build a WHATEVER...
is HORRUNGUS!!!!
almost as horrungus as that walmart shopper's grimey knees! ewwww!

Kimberly~Nutbrown Cottage said...

Okay, found a way to use your sweet granddaughter's word. We got a HORRUNGUS amount of rain this morning, and it's Mud City out in my yard! Glad I was able to move those day lilies yesterday! NOT today!

Attic Clutter said...

HI Diana
Oh how fun is that..she is such a dolly too.have a good week too...
hugs,Patty

Cindy @ Dwellings-The Heart of Your Home said...

I tried commenting on this early this morning but my phone was acting up, so I had to hop back over! Super funny that Sweet Cheeks and you crack me up with that picture! Love the word and I'm sure it can often be used at Walmart among many other places these days!
Thanks for my morning chuckle...
Blessings,
Cindy

Debbie Harris said...

Oh Diana... Once again you have me in stitches!
I just said to my husband " its Wednesday and I must go and see what our word for the day is" glad I didn't miss it. :-)
Wow! That's quite the man you wake up to in the morning.
I really have a hard time comprehending people in wall mart and their mug shots.
Just amazing! And I worry about what I look like when I go to town?
I will certainly use my new word this week.

Enjoy your day,
Debbie

Kathy @ Smile for no Reason said...

What a great word! And I am sorry to say but that is how I look in the morning before coffee :{ High fives to your Hero!!
Have a great day!!! :)

Cranberry Morning said...

No fair!!! You made Walmart off limits! Lol. Today I saw a similar sight and made a comment, not where anyone could hear, after which Mr. Conscience (aka Mr. C.) called me judgmental. I truly wasn't but knew how miserable she must be feeling. So there, Mr. C.! I simply think so many don't know that feeling better is easily within their reach. Now I'll stop with my HORRUNGOUS comment.

camp and cottage living said...

Honestly I don't think I can come up with anything more horrungus than those Wal Mart photos. I can't believe they actually allow people to shop in their stores that dress like that!!
Great word-I vote for a publishing of "The New Edition Sweet Cheeks Dictionary!"

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Sweet angel of death - where do you find these pictures, Diana!?!

Things at work will be horrungus this week with humongus amounts of paperwork to be dealing with and horrid paper cuts from said paperwork!

Donna said...

Such a cute pic of SweetCheeks! I saw a HORRUNGUS-ly dressed woman when I was grocery shopping today. (and no, it was NOT at Walmart!). She was built like, well, the woman in the photo, wore skin tight super short shorts (which showed off her very well endowed pasty white legs), and was wearing short little "bootie" style boots...................

Consider It All Joy said...

For me...that word would probably be used to describe a headache...yep, that's the kind I get! Sweet Cheeks is such a cutie! And, I think I'll just stay away from "W" thank you very much :) Blessings, Cindy

Tina@WhatWeKeep said...

Do you ever think that SweetCheeks has a face shaped like Reese Witherspoon? Look at her little chin. She's darling.
I will get plenty of opportunities to use her word...especially when I have to clean up one of Jack Henry's horrungus "accidents". ;)
Did they kick you out of the VA yet for all your shameless flirting? I bet you received a couple of new marriage proposals!
xoxo, T.

Rose L said...

Oh my, what are some people thinking when they leave the house! I think that word is a close cousin to humungus!! That is one I used as a kid for something large!

Red Rose Alley said...

Oh, that SweetCheeks has a vocabulary all on her own, doesn't she? Such a sweet post, Diana, and I am enjoying all these new words, and trying to figure out what they all mean haha because I know they mean something to this precious child. :~)

love, ~Sheri

Missy George said...

Would that be before your coffee or his?? Amazing the words kids come up with..

SpicingUpIdaho said...

I have to say that your walmart picture fits Sweet Cheeks new word perfectly, lol!

Kelly said...

That's a great word! Sweet Cheeks is a smart and creative girl. I was just at Walmart today for groceries, and I'm happy to report I didn't see anything like that today. LOL!

Kelly said...

Hahahahaha!!! Love me some Sweet Cheeks, word Wednesday and hump day!!!<3

Amy said...

That indeed is a great word.... I might have to get creative on using that for the week, since you all ready used it with Walmart! Oh boy!

Sweet Cheeks is just a doll... I love her smile!

Have a wonderful day, Diana!

Hugs, Amy

Geneva said...

Sweet Cheeks did it again ... :) My mind is already racing to see how I can use the word horrungus. :) :) :)
Blessings sweet friend!

Beemie said...

Once again the creative vocabulary is fab-tastic.

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

That adorable child keeps you so entertained! The only thing I know about the word that fits perfectly is that I'm positive I look "horrungus" every morning of my life. Especially NAKED! Yeah. That's it. Perfect word to discribe me! I would send a pic..but..I would have to cover up face to protect the innocent..and that would be cheating. It takes the entire ....anyway. You get the point. Sweetcheeks does it again!! :):)

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

I've been on a journey back in time. One of those early video's made me burst out laughing. Toy's in the attic...tooo darned cute!

Mary@mydogsmygardenandmary said...

SC is right and that is a wonderful word to use. I cannot believe that anyone would go out looking like that OMG what is this world coming to? It's bad enough when they wear there jammies to the sotres, but you vut the top off and let you ugly gut hang out it's UGH.
Have a great Thursday....
XXOO

I came across a picture today of a 'Walmart worthy' man in a thong on a bike. I thought of you for some strange reason. lol

Candy S said...

As always whenever I see one of these "Walmart" lovelies I don't know whether to laugh hysterically or to wretch violently - Horrungus may not go quite far enough to describe this beauty.

Feral Turtle said...

HAHAHA. That is definitely a great word! She is a keeper!

Kim said...

I just laughed the entire way through this post, Diana. Do you laugh when you write them? You must! Thanks for the chuckle! xo

Coastal Cottage Dreams said...

Such a funny post, your granddaughter is so cute.

Chatty Crone said...

I love these words! When I eat to much I feel HORRUNGUS!

Gypsy Heart said...

Cute!! Lord, give me strength re: Walmart ~

Kathleen Grace said...

Oh. my. Gosh. That last photo leaves me speechless. I can't even come up with a new word let alone an old one. What are people thinking?

Annesphamily said...

The doctor and his wife and sister-in-law were horrungus people, I was working with ! UGH! Great share, have a nice weekend.
