Excerpts From the Ha Family Dictionary, No. 2

Today I would like to share another excerpt from the Ha Family Dictionary.  This one is courtesy of my boy.  Enjoy!

I would like to continue a series that I started many moons ago entitled "Excerpts From the Ha Family Dictionary."   Behold, I give you the Ha family word of the day...



Bajongle

ba-jon-gle [ba jong gle]

interjection, verb

A colorful response to a 
question or circumstance.

An expression of joy, 
surprise, excitement, 
triumph, sarcasm or 
approval.

A state of disorder.


I would love to tell you that I, Mrs. Ha, am the brilliant mastermind behind the creation of this delightful word.  Unfortunately, that would be a lie.  All credit belongs to my hubby, wordsmith extraordinaire.  He's a little goofy like that. 

In all honesty, I cannot remember the first time I heard my hubby use the word, bajongle, in a sentence.  What I do know is that the definition of the word has grown exponentially since it's inception.

Some typical uses for the word are...

"I was driving through the parking lot and, bajongle, an old lady almost backed into me."
A glass of water get's knocked over... "Bajongle!"

The boy:  "Dad, did you see me beat that level on my video game?"
The hubby:  "Bajongle!  Great job!"

"Why is your room such a mess?  It's completely bajongled."

As you can tell, the grammatical applications appear to be virtually endless.  

I'm sure that Webster's will be calling us any day now.  I'm sure they are just dying to add bajongle to their latest edition of the dictionary.
