Move over, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, there’s a new word in town—beegeega.
Max came up with beegeega (BEE-gee-gah) several months ago and life around these parts has never been the same. Beegeega is the go-to word for Max. Sometimes he uses it to be funny; sometimes he uses it to be cute; and sometimes he uses it just to tick me off.
How does one properly use the term? Well, any way one chooses. It is a noun (a proper noun at times), a verb, an adjective, an adverb, a participle, an exclamation, a number, a letter, a topping for toast, and an easy way to save 15% or more on your car insurance.
Let me give you several examples, so that you will be able to add this multi-faceted word to your own vocabulary:
Me: What do you want for lunch, Max?
Max: A beegeega.
Me: How old are you, Max?
Max: Ummmm, beegeega.
Me: Let’s go get in the car.
Max: I don’t like “get in the car”; I like beegeega.
Max: Mommy, where’s a beegeega?
Me: I don’t know what a “beegeega” is.
Max: Where is it?
Me: What? Where is what?
Max: The beegeega.
Me: Max, I don’t know what a beegeega is.
Max: Beegeega is a beeegeega beegeega beegeega. [laughing hysterically]
Me: Go ask Dad.
Me: OK, Max, it’s time to get out of the tub. It’s time to get ready for school.
Max: No, it’s time for BEEGEEGA!
Me: What is a beegeega, Max?
Max: [pointing to the sky] It’s up there.
Me: Max, will you get me the scissors?
Max: BEEGEEGA! Beegeega, beegeega, beegeega!
So, go for it. Add it to your vernacular and use it to torture and annoy your loved ones and coworkers. What time is it, they might ask? Well, it’s just a quarter past beegeega. Did you get those spreadsheets prepared for the meeting, they wonder? They’re almost done; you’re just waiting on beegeega. Were you the one who put the red sock in with the load of whites? No, no, it wasn’t you. You were too busy beegeega.
See how fun this can be? Use it until you’re beegeega in the face.
