Fleedebeflop and baa hamp – delicious!

May 27, 2013

H has his own language.  Sometimes he conducts entire conversations in it, mostly to an avid  and highly appreciative audience of himself in the mirror.  Sometimes they are just words, thrown into a sentence and we have to guess what he means.  He doesn’t have an imaginary friend as such – just a whole language to himself.  I suppose it’s the only way he gets to have a sensible conversation.

Fleedebeflop is toast and baa hamp is scrambled egg.  And that’s what J had for lunch today.

Yesterday A and I decided that we ought to find out just how committed he is.

Me: What’s “Mummy” in your language, H?

H: It’s Bealfump.

Me: What does Bealfump mean?

H: It means “Mummy stay here forever”.

Cue a small bottom-lip-wobble from me and a wide-eyed look from A.

Me: And what’s the word for ‘Daddy’?

H: It’s Fillagump.

Me: What does Fillagump mean?

H: It means “Daddy, come back from work.”

I think A’s just cancelled his next 2 proposed work trips away…

  1. Hi there! This article couldn’t be written any better! Looking through this post reminds me of my previous roommate! He continually kept preaching about this. I am going to forward this post to him. Pretty sure he’ll have a very good read.
    Thanks for sharing!


  2. Thank you very much. I’m glad you enjoyed it. I hope your old roommate does too!
