As I don't have a paid account I can't make an actual "poll" so I'll just ask you to comment.

That drawer with random stuff in it, the one that's probably in the kitchen. What do you call that drawer?

A.) the "miscellaneous" drawer
B.) the "junk" drawer
C.) the "whatnot" drawer
D.) something else (explain)

Personally I call it the "whatnot" drawer as that is what I heard growing up.

So I thought of another typical word my mother loved to use a lot -- skedaddle. I now realize that not everyone has heard this word, and some people laugh at me when I say it.

The other thing I like about it is that it goes nicely with that word made so famous by Oz in BtVS, namely, "mosey". (For a fascinating article about the contradictory meanings of this, see the "Slow down faster" section of this article.)

Mosey! Skedaddle!

I just love words.

So do other people use "skedaddle"?

And what about vamoose? That was another of her favorites.
