My sis and I remembered some more of our families hillbilly words and wanted to do a sequel to my Feb 15th post
hootenanny: hooten·anny (ho̵̅o̅t′’n an′ē). noun pl. hootenannies. A meeting of folk singers, as for public entertainment.
curmudgeon: (kər muj′ən). noun. a surly, ill-mannered, bad-tempered person; cantankerous fellow
tarnation: (tär nā′s̸hən). noun. It is prevalent among hillbillies to say euphemisms to show anger, such as “tarnation.” It’s a word that’s a substitute for one such as “damnation”. Other examples of euphemisms in hillbilly slang to avoid cursing are “gol durn it” and “dag nab it.”
lollygag: (lä′lē gag′). verb. to waste time in trifling or aimless activity; fool around
heebie-jeebies: ( hē′bē jē′bēz). noun. A feeling of uneasiness or nervousness; the jitters.
