Oocha Coocha Bing Bang Bam

Remember “hucha”? That was the great new word I learned and wrote about recently (click here). Before writing the “hucha” post, I looked up the word to see what else I could learn. I discovered a word with the same pronunciation but a different spelling. It’s green glittery nail polish. No Jungle Red here, this one is oddly called “Oocha Coocha Bing Bang Bam Alakazy Alakazam.”

OOCHA COOCHA BING BANG BAM

Oocha Coocha Bing Bang Bam Alakazy Alakazam reminded me of a color the Dowager Duchess wore last year. Hers was darker and more metallic than glittery. Certainly much more classy. She said it’s one of her “fall” colors. When she’s ready, I’ll be sure to show you the Duchess’s oocha … but definitely not her “hucha.” (I’m sure I’m in trouble for even mentioning it.)

LAST WEEK ON SKYPE, I ASKED THE DUCHESS TO SHOW ME HER NAILS.
I THOUGHT ORANGE WAS A FALL COLOR, TOO. (AND, YES, THOSE ARE HER REAL NAILS.)

      I just made up my gourmet breakfast bowl of yogurt, peaches, and cereal. Instead of saying "voila!" when it was done, I said "oocha coocha bing bang bam alakazy alakazam!"

      I think I'll stick to "voila!"

      Ooh, I can picture the smirk. Are you peering over the top of your eyeglasses? I learned that from San Geraldo. I learned how to respond from his sister.

      She said, "Oh, when he does that, I just do this," as she took her finger and pushed the glasses back up.

      The Duchess emailed today that she's now got her green on! But she had to cut her nails down because she going back to her Ceramics Club at school and her long nails make it too difficult to work the clay. I'll get a screen shot this Saturday.

      The Duchess has nails like that because she doesn't have chickens, ducks, and bees.
