The "me three" thing has reminded me that my parents always referred to three-pronged pickle forks as "threeks" (because fo(u)rks have four prongs, so threeks have three...), and although I think it was originally a joke, they used it pretty much all the time, and it wasn't obvious to me growing up that it wasn't standard. (And it caused me to misspell "fork" a lot when I was young.)

No, no, in order to be part of the threek/fourk family, it had to be silverware. We did generalize to "salad threek" (at one particular restaurant that I remember) and a large serving utensil with three wide flat "tines" was the "serving threek". I remember thinking that maybe those two-pronged things that you use to poke meat and see if it's done would be a twok, but decided that since you couldn't scoop food with it it didn't count. Of course, by that time I knew it wasn't a real word...

I wonder if you can work out what a fivehead is, if you don't know already. Hint: it's along the same lines as fork.

No, that's definitely not a 'regular word', but it makes sense, of course.

I'll occasionally use the phrase "at the current", as a combo between "at the moment", and "at the current moment"

My sister and I use 'future' (from 'see you in the future') as a parting phrase.

Friday at work I heard "dago t-shirt" for "wife-beater" for I think the first time. Certainly the first time at work, where ethnic slurs are more out of place than overalls. It made me wonder what I even called such things before "wife-beater" gained widespread currency. "Tank-tops"? "Sleeveless t-shirts"? I can't even remember.
