Mama-isms

My mama has a sweet southern accent. She doesn't always include her L's and R's. Her words don't have any sharp edges, but rather they are rounded off and easily dropped off her tongue and gently floated to your ears. If you combine that with her tendency to make up words, you will have delightful conversations with an adorable, little, funny woman. 

Last night she was telling me about something that was quite confining, and she said, "Wouldn't that make you feel claustahphobic?"

I was grinning as I replied, "Mom, there's no such word as claus-tah-phobic." 

Without blinking, she nodded with a huge smile and said, "I know, but wouldn't it make you feel that way?"

Oh my she makes me smile!

claus-tah-phobic = the fear of a fat man sliding down your chimney.
