Look, I did spell-check and it didn't recognize "chachkis" but I thought that was because it was Yiddish.
Typepad also doesn't recognize "Heh" but do I let that stop me?
According to Dictionary.com, the word can be spelled one of two ways:
chach·ka or tchotch·ke
So Wendy, I was only one letter off. Brrrplatlll. (How does one spell a raspberry?)
Please tell me that I spelled "raspberry" correctly.
And to my dear brother-in-law Randy: Joannie loved CHACHI, not tchotchkes!
Actually, she may have loved tchotchkes. I don't really remember what their apartment looked like. I was too focused on her hair.
*I* loved Chachi but that's a whole other post. He could have been Charles in charge of me. I'm just sayin'.
Rats. Now I have the theme song to Charles in Charge in my head. Charles in charge of our days and our nights. Charles in charge of our wrongs and our rights. And I sing . . . I want, I want Charles in charge of me!
And that's my little present to you, Cagney and Lacey of the Spelling Police . . . mess with me again and I'll lay an Oscar Meyer or Band-aid commercial on you. Don't make me prove it!
RKQOTD (Me: Karl, you need fifty cents for pajama day today. Find it and put it in your back- Karl: (interrupting) Dad already gave me fifty cents last night and I put it in a memorable zipper pocket in my backpack. Me: Good job! Karl: And by "memorable" I mean that I know where it is.)
