  1. Doohickey one of my go to words along with thingamajig and telling my children “stop dillydallying” I am looking forward to seeing what other great words you come up with.

  2. To this day, Doohickey is one of my mom’s favorite words. She is also fond of the phrase “hotter than Ole Billy Byedern”…I have no idea who that is, but it’s a bit catchy. Really enjoyed A-D. Great theme, very fun.
