Sometimes there is a word that can be used in so many circumstances that the word becomes legendary and is passed down through the generations.
Surely your family has such a word.
Daryl's word is "sapper". Dictionary.com defines 'sapper' as a soldier who digs trenches. What? That's not even close!
an exclamatory word. As in, "Daryl, the horses are out." His response, "Sapper!"
As in, "Lily, you are really getting big!" Her response, "I am a big ole' sapper. Minnie is a big sapper, too."
As in, "Jonathan, do you want a big yard or a small yard?" His response, "A big yard so I can have a big ole' sapper garden!"
Needless to say, Daryl is very proud.
