jhall38 commented on the word hornswaggell
This one is used as a verb for anything you can't quite put the correct action with.
"You walked in the door at 4 in the morning! Your mother is gonna hornswaggell you."
"Well- I'll be hornswaggelled."
jhall38 commented on the list things-my-nana-has-said
My grandmother, Nana, is from Oklahoma originally but has spent most of her life in the Texas panhandle. Her vocabulary consists of many words I have never heard used by another human being and several of which I suspect she invented herself.
