When I was a little kid, my sisters and I used to come up with our own terminology and names for all kinds of things. "Water-on-both-sides" comes to mind. This was a place where a rural road cut through a swamp. At one point there was clear, running water on both sides of the road because of a big steel pipe beneath the road that allowed for it to flow from one side to the other. Anyone hearing us say "Let's go walk by water-on-both-sides would have had no idea what we were talking about. Likewise, if they heard us say "Let's go make tuna fish." They would have assumed they did know what we were talking about, and would have been wrong. This actually refered to a pointless time-killer we did when bored, which was to mash rotten twigs up with a stone. The result looked like tuna fish. "Raindrop Island" wasn't an island in a lake or pond. Our rural driveway was in the shape of a cul-de-sac, and raindrop island was the raindrop shaped patch of grass with a big pine tree growing in it in the middle of the turnaround. The tree had a thick rope hanging off it, and at one point there used to be a tire hanging from the rope. I don't remember what happened to the tire, but I used to grab onto the rope and pretend it was tied around the snout of a tyranoaurus and wrestle it back and forth. (I got the idea from seeing a guy lasso a dinosaur in a movie.) Do you remember any random/strange/funny names you had for stuff when you were a kid?
