The thingy

Language evolves. The meaning of a word can shift over time as we use it differently — think of “cool,” “heavy,” or even “literally.”
Today, give a word an evolutionary push: give a common word a new meaning, explain it to us, and use it in the title of your post.


“You know! You do!”

“Its the thingy.  Right there.  That one.”

“Turn that thingy”

“I lost the damn thingy!  Have you seen it?”


It is time to stop guessing what that “thingy” is.  I hereby name any object that is failing to perform as required for women, as the thingy.

Men will instantly know what the thingy is and this also brings about the end for women being asked if their car has petrol when its not working properly.

All hail the power of the new thingy!




I was 46 years old when I begun this blog, female and married with a house full of cats (7). My past is littered with the impact of events that happened when I was a teen. Two loves of my life have been nursing and studying. I just completed my Master of Arts: Media Studies endorsement. My blog will be about the things I think about, that might be better served being written rather than squirreled away in my mind festering. It is the meanderings of my mind as I seek to define myself and my world.
