After reading what you said there, I decided to do my own "brokie" tribute for my dear husband who passed away in November.
The dress, which whenever I wore it, my hubby would say..."oh, I see you have my favourite dress on again"...I have had the dress for over 10 years.....it was the one I wore to his funeral........it now hangs on the hanger, under his favourite shirt, where they will remain forever.



THey look great together!!

My mother asked me how my daughter was doing today. I said that after celebrating Purim last night, she was so tired she was "sleeping on her feet like a horse." My mother laughed as if that was the most clever thing she had ever heard!

I heard about a middle-school trivia night tomorrow, and thought the price ($3) and location (at the school, three blocks away) sounded good, and hoped my son would be interested in attending. So I suggested he smarten up and call some friends and go to it.

He replied, "That fire and brimstone crowd? sounds extremely boring."

I, imagining myself as Alma, said, "Well, I think it would be nice."

Haha! I assume your son isn't in on the joke, as my mom isn't either. But, my husband is savvy. One time I mentioned that I thought a certain something was held together with "chewing gum and balin' wire" and he said "That's from your movie, isn't it." Yup, it was.

Nobody I know in real life is in on the joke.  :-\

Yeah, that's one of the odd aspects of deliberately using Brokieisms in real life.  They're mainly for my own amusement when I use them.

But also, I think about how I will post it here, where I can share the moment with people who appreciate it.
