OK, I recently posted a reply on another thread in which I used the word "glick". Not sure when it came about, but everybody in my family knows what it means... So I thought it would be fun to hear some others. I'll start...
Speeper = Windshield washer nozzle. "the windshield is covered in glick, better hit the speeper".

we're very skeptical.
Gazinta. It's any of those leftover plastic tubs with lids, like for margarine or Cool Whip. When it's empty you wash it, keep it, and it's what empty food goes inta. Gazinta.
We call it all Margaware, but I kinda like Gazinta...
Everyone in my family knows chu-chut (rhymes with "the foot.")
"The" chu-chut is the remote control. "A" chu-chut or "that" chu-chut is just a generic term we use when we cannot remember the right name for something.
Funny how complicated that sounds - we don't even think about it. So, "Where's the chu-chut?" sends everyone scrambling to find the remote. But "Where's that chu-chut we use to vacuum the corners?" is a request for the crevice tool. See? Easy!
