A New Word

Hyscarical. adj. The description of what it's like to be a grown man who is pulled behind a speed boat at 25 miles an hour on a tube while his buddy, who is driving, tries to dump him by slingshotting him over the wakes. Origin: Coined by the Girl last weekend while we were the lake as her dad talked about about how scary it was and how hard he was laughing.

Ha! You are not kidding! And thank you for the sticker love! I am SOOOO bummed that I forgot them at home when packing for the trip. They would have been great rewards for kids' jounaling and writing practice. And for Mommy's navigational duties, which include keeping kids happy in the car for hours on end.

LOL. And I'm glad Girl is coining for our lexicon!

I love it. The word and the image. I haven't gone tubing like that since I was 8, but the description, after so many years, is spot-on!

But I am sure you are right. Somehow hicsarious didn't roll off the tongue as well.
