Silly Family Words & Phrases
1) “Shhh, its moobie theatre!”
When I was little around 6 years old I look forward to watching movies with my family. We would turn all the lights off and have popcorn at the ready. Then if anyone started talking after the movie started I would get all angry and say, “Shhh, its moobie theatre!”
My dad and mine’s favorite comedian is Eddie Izzard. We love his show called dressed to kill and cracked up at one of his gags where he was imitating a Italian person on a scooter going “Chow!” so now when we see each other we will occasionally say, “Chow!”
Ever sense I was born I have called my sister, sister. I almost never called her by her name, Samantha. Now even my mom and dad call her sister sometimes. I still call her sister to this day. I never really grew out of calling her sister.
4)”Ray and Rews”
My family created this tradition that created our family nick names. You take your first name put Rews at the beginning, shorten your name and then put ray at the end. So for example my name was Rews Ronica Ray. My sisters was Rews Mantha Ray. It’s always kind of been embarrassing when my parents called us that in public, but we survived.
