A new word for you!
My Aunt used that word (and several similar) as a matter of course, and I'm talking 1943 when I went to live with her after my Mum died. It was usually uttered when pulling her shoes off when returning from her office cleaning job at about 0800. Extending/amalgamating/adapting words isn't solely the prerogative of Jack.
Her name wasn't Mrs Malaprop by any chance?
No. She was nearer 1843.
I was an hour out =D
The old lady next door to us in Oz had a love hate relationship with her dog. It was a scabby mutt and used to follow her everywhere, but she was always shooing it away, at which time the dog would growl at her and she would threaten to kick it's "instrells" in.
Never did find out what instrells were.
Separate names with a comma.
