Tough one…

I used to live K’vetch, but since the Trips have become experts…not so much.

I LOVE the way my daughter says Shvitzy – Sher-witz-see.

schvitz because it sounds like a “naughty” word but isn’t!

I named my kitten Oliver-Shalom because I thought Aliva-Shulum (sp? may he/she rest in peace) was a guy’s name when I was a kid and didn’t understand why there were so many dead “Olivers”.

There are Yiddish words that simply do not have an equivalent in any language such as feh, nu?, kvell and kvetch. Then there are those that roll off the tongue so delightfully like alter kacker, meiskeit, dreck, ek velt, mechaieh and those that are extraordinarily expressive such as drey kop, kin a hora and guntzer macher. But if I must chose one, it would be my father’s favorite: “A nechtiger tog,” an impossibility, when pigs fly, etc.

My favourite Yiddish word is “fekakte”… I know I spelled it wrong… That or “alta kahker” — also spelled wrong…
