\BAWL-der-dash\ , noun;
1.Senseless, stupid, or exaggerated talk or writing; nonsense.
2.(Archaic:) A muddled mixture of liquors.
I’ve developed a pretty nonsensical game with the three-year-old dreamer I watch. We pretend we are stirring up cake batter or some other sort of recipe…and she has me try it…then she squeals, “there’s a worm in that!!!” and I spit it out dramatically and say a different word she laughs at like, “Balderdash!” or “Poppycock! Marlarkey! Flummery!”
It’s really caught on. Sometimes before she says hi, she says, “let’s play the worm spitting game!”
