blodyholy: I've heard of but two of those words. Interesting read!


I agree. And I enjoyed a sensible chuckle:

"No one is quite certain where nippitaty(also seen on occasion as nippitate, nippitato, and nippitatum) comes from, although it's been staggering about in the English language since the 16th century."

Isn't that when you let the waiter lick your nipple in lieu of a tip?

Yep, I'm a variety of "retired", "allergic", "over it" and "just not in the mood" in social situations with work colleagues or vague aquaintances, but to my friends I'm recovering and regularly attending AA meetings. But TFA is nevertheless interesting and, sadly, all too relatable.

Same as well. You allude to an issue, which is how to assert being dry in a professional setting where many drink. Everyone warned about peer pressure in high school, as if everyone would be insisting that you snort rails of PCP. What was not a real problem. A real problem is being a professional in your 40s and going to work functions and gracefully not drinking. Some key decision makers in my org hash things out by going to a brew pub. The pressure is real.

Isn't that first word like some song they used to sing in WWI or WWII?

♫ It's a long way to Nippitary, it's a long way to go ♫

Subby has no idea what he has unleashed on all of my acquaintances, family, colleagues at work....  I would go on, but I have a ton of memorizing to do now.

Yeah, they used to sing that song a lot.  Until it was over.  Over there.

I've been sober from alcohol since 2009. I miss beer once and a while but not enough to start drinking again. There are certain people in the world who cannot drink. I'm one of them.

I've used the term "nip" before without knowing where it came from. Nice.

Congratulations on your 12 years of sobriety. Sorry to hear about your liver disease.

I know too many of those.

But dead man/ dead soldier i know as fallen soldier.

Favorite word though when it comes to drinking is quaff.

To us, a dead soldier is a half empty beer that someone left behind.

I weep for how the original intention of symposia has been evilly corrupted in modern times.

Many a deadman at my side leading to a crapulous morning of imbibing an antifogmatic of bug juice.

My mother's brother looked like one of the Katzenjammer Kids brought to life. The round face, bug-eyes, and swept back hair.

That's because 750ml has now become the standard instead of fifth of a gallon or 25.6 oz. 750ml (25.4 oz) also is slightly less so the manufacturer makes a little more profit.
