Moo = I love you
We were staying at my grandparents’ house for Christmas, and we stayed up late playing this word association game in bed (sexy, no? Okay, who wants to have sex in their grandparents’ guest bedroom?). You say a word, then the other person says the first word they think of, then you say the first word you think of that is triggered by what they said. It sounds easy, but it gets really difficult after a few minutes, since you can’t repeat any previous words. So we’re playing this game, and I say the word, “Elephant” and he says, “Moo.” I started laughing and couldn’t think of anything to say back, so he won the round. Later on at some point, I made him a scrapbook, and I included a picture of an elephant with the word Moo! coming out of it’s mouth. So now he says Moo to me all the time as an expression of affection.

we ‘rawr’ at each other. it’s a quick way to say i love you. i found a print on etsy that says ‘rawr is dinosaur for i love you’. i bought it for him for our anniversary and I think we might find a way to incorporate it into the wedding decor!

Ask Me (or tapping below your eye) : meaning like ‘ask me if I care’ , we will say it mostly when we are telling stories .. ex: so and so did this and that and I was like “ASK ME/tap below the eye”
Burnt Toast: if we or someone else does something forgetful we will say burnt or burnt toast

We call people a “Mark” if we think they are a loser/idiot. I know it sounds mean, but it’s better than talking about people. Most of the time it ends up being a joke between us and my BILs, we’ll say something like, “Quit being such a mark!” We also use “Zank” in this context too.
If you’re wondering where we got “Mark” from it was said in the 25th Hour with Edward Norton as “Mork”, but more in the context of being a snitch or backwards gangster…we’re dorks I know.. lol.

Things are so incredibly cute!!
My Fiance and I are desperately needing a word for stop whenever we play the tickle game and stuff, but we’re not that original. Haha, we thought about using ‘Ichigo’ but it just doesn’t work. 😛

HAHA! We do that too! We do RAWR as a cute way of saying I love you. I love the “RAWR is Dinosaur for ‘i love you’.”
We also speak white-ebonics. Meaning we make meanless ebonics terms out of words by adding “izzy” or “izzle”. For instance “Damn! I forgot to pick up my shizzle at the store.” or “Alright, I’m gonna go throw away the trizzle.” I know, so dumb…we are just goofy people.
We also pronounce words incorrectly on purpose to be funny. We only do it around eachother, or else we’d look like morons out in the general public…some examples
Fajita (pronounce the j)
Quesadilla (pronounce the L’s)
and many more.

My husband says “Bloop” for “I love you.” He also says I love you, fortunately. lol. The story is there is a Gamecube game for Nintendo 64 called “Harvest Moon” and you have to care for and feed your farm animals. When you pet them and they love you, a little heart appears above their head and the sound effect for the heart is a little “bloop” noise. So my husband will say “Bloop” and will a lot of times use his hands to form a heart above his head. That’s my favorite “code word” that we have.
We also say “playtime” for sex. lol. Neither of us really likes it, and it’s not particularly original, but we haven’t come across something we like better.

We also pronounce the l’s in quesadilla. It’s from Napoleon Dynamite!

snicker – too cute – is there a background story to that?

LOL we have words from video games too. On Super Mario Bros 3 for the Wii, you can get a mushroom that makes you really small. I didn’t know what it was called, so I just started calling it a “tiny,” with the “i” drawn out. Now, anytime we see anything that’s really small, we say, “Oooh, it took a tiiiiny!”

When we’re in public, one of us will shout (usually across the room) “Can I holla at ya?” and the other responds “Holla back!” which translates to “I love you!” and “I love you too!” It started when we were drunk one night, and I was saying “I love you” in as many languages as I could remember, and he’d respond in kind. Jokingly, I said “Can I holla at ya?” and he responded with “Holla back!” and to this day, he thinks I was setting him up for a joke and trusting that he’d pick it up and know the funny response. Not the case, it just came out without any forethought. I let him believe I did it on purpose, though.

YES! that’s where it’s from…now I remember. Unforuntately, saying that has snowballed into us pronouncing everything incorrectly. We seriously speak our own obnoxious language at home. Between the fake-ebonics to the mispronounciation to the fact that both of us cuss like sailors and say inappropriate things to eachother all the time, it would be painful to the innocent bystander. THANK GOD we can turn it off as soon as other people are around.

Aw some of these are cute. My Fiance puts his finger on the side of his nose to indicate that he wants me to bring him a beer. Not so cute, haha. The only other words we use are so the dogs don’t know what we’re talking about i.e. “edible delight” for a treat and stroll instead of walk. We’re boring I guess, haha.
ETA – wait I just remembered one, we say chuddle to mean cuddle, but as a noun, like “I could use a chuddle.” Not sure why.

I don’t know if its really code but we kiss 3 times before he drops me off like 1 2 3… I love you. Or sometimes we’lll write 123 and it means I love you
