Fondly missing those old words
I grew up in New York, then moved to California when I was 21. I sooned learned there were words or expressions that just didn't exist or couldn't be said out loud out here. Sometimes I get nostalgic and miss these words.
We never said jeans. It was always 'dungarees'.
What we now call purses were 'pockabooks' (not even pocketbooks.)
I said donkey as 'dunkey', DH teased me out of even saying the word anymore.
Radiator (for below window heaters) was pronounced 'rah-diator' (first 'a' as in cat).
Tennies were only called 'sneakers.'
I know there are others--just can't remember them. Did you ever use these words, or are you still saying them?
Do you have any old words you fondly remember but don't use anymore? Just thought this might be fun to post on a rainy day.
