In Cheesie Mack Is Not a Genius or Anything, I described our fifth-grade graduation party (which was entirely fun, except for Goon’s massive interference…). One of the things I wrote was:
I took a huge running start, then scoogled (this is my made-up word . . . it is a combination of scoot and wiggle) on the Slip ’N Slide and skivolvunged butt-first into the dirt, which was actually mud.
And then I asked:
Can you guess what “skivolvunged” is a three-way combo of?
Here’s the answer:
SKId + reVOLVe + lUNGED
If you have a different answer, I would love to know it. Please comment below.
Does the small “l” in “lunged” look like a number 1 to you? It does on my computer.
IMO, that is a big mistake in typography (my mom says that’s what the look of letters and numbers on a page or screen is called). I’m going to type them together so you can see how similar they are:
oh really how do you think about words like that
Skid revolution erea
I thought it had something to do with you skiing down the Slip ‘N Slide and revolving around and then plunging.
Use the word chanmind instead.It means change my mind. PLEASE.
Chanmind…hmmm. I’ll think about it.
raslispi means ran+slide+spin=raslispi PLESE USE THIS!!!!!!
Cool word! Maybe I will.
landed, the answer is, hmm?
Uppercase i and lowercase L look the same with most Fonts.
Oh wait u did
I have another combination: ski-vote-lunge , just that it can’t be used except for when u vote for the president or something.
also, does a lowercase l look more like an uppercase i?
it does on my computer.
i am going to type them together, actually, so you can see how they would look next to each other.
wait- i forgot that the lines would be there.
SKID, REVOLVE, LUNGED(i figured it out from looking at the word in the book)
i thought it was skid revolve and plunged
i thought it was ski volcano and lunged
“Volcano” would probably mean I’d have to spew while doing it.
