So true!! LMAO. desymptomize is my fave. Took my kids to the docs last week for head colds and ear infections..Both had a fever not an hour before but neither did in the office..WTF

Michelle@lifeinawhirlwind said...

Desymptomize is my fav too! I can really relate to that one. Nothing like taking time out of your day, paying the co-pay and having your child tell the doctor that they are fine now. URG!

Marybeth said...

I'm all about the desymptomize word too. It's WAY too true. You should consider copyrights on that puppy!

The Mom Jen said...

Desymptomize is the BEST and so flippin' true!

amelia bedelia said...

a trip by the doughnut store on the way to school fixes desymtomize, too.

Tiffany @ Paging Doctor Mommy said...

Planning to fall into an aquasedation stupor myself later on this evening!

Cassie said...

My kid has desymptomized at least three times and he's only 10 months old. This must be an ability they are born with.

Daddy Geek Boy said...

Brilliant. Simply brilliant.

Jen said...

these are awesome and the last one is just so true. sucks.

MrsSki said...

Bagstitious was my favorite! I do this every time I go to the store. I think it might irritate the cashier because I don't trust that she gave me all of my bags unless I spin the bagging round about just to double check!

Miss Yvonne said...

I am totally bagstitous every time I go to the walmarts. I'm all spinning the carousel over and over until the checker grabs it and gives me a dirty look. Then I say in a feeble voice "just checking?" and scurry away.

Deconstructing Jen said...

good stuff. we totally have the dandeline going on between us and our neighbors yard right now. something tells me his yard care cash has been rerouted to a different type of weed.

Rebecca said...

HAHAHA! Thanks for the laugh!

Christina said...

Oh.. my kids often suffer from Desymptomize.

Heather said...

Wow, I thought I was the only one with bagstitious behavior! :D

We also note strong dandelines on our street between the three houses that use TruGreen or ChemLawn or whoever and the rest of us, who don't. (We like to think we're saving the environment....)

My kid desymptomizes regularly upon entering the pediatrician's office. Except for the one time when we were in for a sore throat (looked strep-ish) and she went for a change-up and barfed all over me, herself and the exam room with no warning.

Another excellent round of made up words. You seriously need to be the Sniglets Writer of the Aughties.

Shaggs said...

Bagstitous is when I am suspicious that someone's Prada/BabyPhat/Gucci/overpricedbrandedbag is actually a fake. Especially seeing as they are using that bag while wearing bike shorts and thongs while picking the kids up from school in the 10 year old Holden Astra. Very Bagstitous.

Lumpy lu said...

I love the words.
You crack me up.

the Mayor said...

The most frustrating is when you take your car in for repair and it magically stops acting up. Can cars desymptomize?
Then all the mechanics have a good chuckle at another crazy woman who doesn't know what's up with her car.

Liz said...

LMAO! I love the desymptomize and the walmart one!!

Lipstick said...

LMAO!!! I can't even pick a fave. That all are hilarious!!! And so true...

Jillian said...

I hate bagstition!

What I hate more is the look the cashier gives me: Like I'm a retarded puppy who has mortally offended her by implying that she MIGHT forget to give me my bag. This is after this has happened to me about 30 times in my life, but she doesn't care. I'm EVIL because I implied it.

Lindy said...

Love dandeline...it's so true.

And I yell "NO" as my daughter goes to pick the one that pushed through the weed killer knowing full well that if she pulls it they'll come in full throttle.

HHS,
Would updated version of Yawnglop be Twyawnitter or Yawnitter?

Yawnglop sounds like nickname for Gwyneth Paltrow's Blog, Goop

Thanks for the Laugh

HappyHourSue said...

Anonymous: I find it oddly disconcerting that Gwenyth Paltrow has a blog.

Must go investigate.

HappyHourSue said...

OK, what is that? Goop? shop-eat-be....what? You confound me, Gwenyth Paltrow.

Lisa-licious said...

More great words for your book of "Sue-isms" due sometime in the near future...after sales from your "Chicken Soup for the Power Mom's Soul" die down...if they ever do! VERY funny.

Can you make up a word for the sitch where the kids don't want to finish their dinner because they claim to be "full"...until you let them know you made frosted brownies or some other killer dessert?

Anonymous said...

HHS,
I have never been to Paltrow's site, only your blog, you make me laugh and sometimes teary but I heard about her "Shampoo causes Cancer" Blog.
Hope you had a chuckle

Lisa Liscious, the word is Desertitis. Come on we all get it. Tell me you never had a piece of your favourite desert...Chocolate sumpin' when you are ready to explode! Always room for Jello.

Michelle said...

Hilarious!

Ali said...

I can be very bagstitious at times. Sometimes I just want to give that carousel a spin to make sure I've got it all but I'm afraid to offend the cashier--I don't want her to think that I think she's not doing her job! I know, I've got problems.

MommyTime said...

These are awesome! I have a terrible dandeline between my house and the neighbors'. In their defense, they moved in this past Halloween, and the house had been vacant for six years, so they have a lot of catching up to do. Still, I'm hating the little rat flowers that are creeping over and taking up residence in my yard.

Shelley said...

Sue, will you make up a word for me? I need a word that means "an unreasonable fear of certified mail." Some sort of phobia, I'm sure. I just don't know what. Certifitaphobia just seems too obvious. Please help.

Brittany said...

Ok, Walmart Carosel? BIGGEST SCAM EVER! And it's always the bag with my replacement razor cartridges, vibrator batteries and family size bag of cheetos. You know...THE ESSENTIALS!

Leanne said...

Yes. We get a lot of desymptomize around here too. What's up with that?

Mary K Brennan said...

Love desymptomize. It happened with my kids last week and then I caught their cold and while sitting at the doctors myself today I suddenly felt fine. Luckily the Dr. believed me because as soon as I left the office the mystery illness returned.

WhisperingWriter said...

Yawnglop!

I love it.

Great words.

Selaen said...

Oh I love bagstitious! I always check the carousel a few times before I leave, more often than not STILL forgetting a bag or two.. :P

xx

SJN said...

want to play Scrabble with made up words?

Mouthy Housewife said...

I am improving my vocabulary already!

I happen to suffer from PsychiClutter, which occurs while I'm cleaning but I can already see how my family will mess everything up, so what's the point?

Anonymous said...

Thanks for one more reminder of why I despise MalWart...

My 12 year old son had a great one this week... his new nickname for himself after being very 'musical' in the pool the other night is "I, Farticus"

Shannon said...

Love it! I was just noticing my neighbor's dandeline today! Gotta love some weed-b-gone!

Teresa @ Grammy Girlfriend said...

I love your blog and have enjoyed reading it.
I am still a new blogger but leaning new things each day.
I hope you will stop by and visit me.
The May give away has started....and next week I will be blogging from Disney World.
