Lol, it is a great word meaning something not so nice back home (unsolicited and often bossy insight), you are so right that the word travelled a lot.. Although - at home people would say "noooo, what are you on about, I am not kibitzing, I am HELPING". Hahahah.

Chickpeas.

Lol, I know....But it presents itself for various reasons and in various degrees. Just saying, before somebody yet again gets frustrated with their kid who seems to drag their feet or is always late or takes forever with something...it is actually a super valid dysfunction. They really try hard to control it and it is stronger than them. All kids are this way a tiny bit but most learn time management efficiently. Some have tough time with this but it might have nothing to do with laziness, escapism or being spaced out.

Re: Word of Today

Loving "mega froh". Reminds me a family member always incorporating "hübsch&schlank" in any sentence, anyway he can. It is a long running joke..
