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". defines 'sapper' as a soldier who digs trenches.  What?  That's not even close!

Sap' per
   - interjection
        an exclamatory word.  As in, "Daryl, the horses are out."  His response, "Sapper!"

   - noun
        As in, "Lily, you are really getting big!"  Her response, "I am a big ole' sapper.  Minnie is a big sapper, too."

   - adjective
        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.
