Does your family have a word for the cardboard tube left over from a roll of toilet paper? A caller says his family refers to them Oh-ah, Oh-ahs. Turns out many families have their own terms for them, including drit-drit, dawda dawda, hoo-hoo, to-do, taw-taw, and der der.

In my family the Oh-ah Oh-ah was called a "doot-da-dooh."

Jim and Heather, thanks for the comments. So, did you also have words for the big ones that held wrapping paper?

My brother and I called them "awk-awks" and they were a prized possession. Now, as a third grade teacher, I still call my PVC "microphone" in my classroom an "awk-awk."
