Quoof and other family nonsense

I love this!

My husband asked me to purchase some foo-foo from the grocery store shortly after we married 35 years ago. I had no idea what he was asking for. It was his word for canned whipped cream! He’d used it as a child, coined by his grandmother, and now all our, now adult, children say foo-foo.

Of course we also had the prerequisite “besketty” or “skabetty” depending on the child. But foo-foo is definitely the odd-ball word.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
