aspell--"I am going to sit with you aspell and do a bit of knitting." (awhile)
yander--"Why, those folks just live right over yander!" My grandpa used to say this all of the time and I always wanted to be just like Grandpa, so of course, I started repeating it. My mom would get so mad and tell me to STOP saying that because "yander" is not even a word! (yonder)
backards--"Did you get dressed in the dark this morning? You have your shirt on backards!" (backwards)
bub--"The light bub on the porch has burned out again." (bulb)
chimley--"Santa always brings me great presents when he comes down the chimley." I still say "chimley" rather than "chimney"!
cut on the light--"It sure is dark in here, please cut on the light." I still use this one all of the time. (turn on the light)
trim a pencil--"The lead in my pencil just broke. I am going to look for a pencil trimmer." I never realized that this was the least bit strange until a co-worker looked at me like I was nuts! (pencil sharpener)
druthers--"If I had my druthers, I would always eat a piece of pie before I would eat mustard greens!" (rather)
dreen--"If you would dreen the water out of those pinto beans, we could go ahead and start cooking them." (drain)
eat a bait--"He came over for dinner and laws, he did eat a bait of food!" (eat large quantities)
getting your dander up--"You don't have to get your dander up, I'll make more cookies." (upset)
If I had my druthers, I would stay home from work tomorrow!
