When I was a teenager, which is farther in the past than I would like to calculate, I liked using the catch phrase, "wait-what?" Then Disney practically trademarked the phrase in Frozen, and I could never use it again. Luckily, I was well into my adulthood by then.
Aside from catch phrases, W is useful for –
Wow, look! A present!
Whoa, how did that get here?
Um, I don’t know it was just delivered.
What is it?
I think it’s a pony. Or maybe a pushmi-pullyu.
Definitely a pony.
But who from?
Let’s open and find out!
How do you open this thing?
I think you lift this bolt.
Ah, yes, thank you!
Whoa, wait, what are you-
Wahoo! It is a pony! I’ll call you Fred.
Um, what are you doing?
I’m going to ride Tom.
I thought his name was Fred.
I changed it.
Okaay, do you know how to ride a pony?
Of course, I watched a video on Youtube.
This, I got to see.
*Grunt* *Grunt* *Wheeze* *Wheeze*
Whew! See easy as – Hey, stay still, will ya Frank? Whoa, boy, Whoa!
Um, wasn’t his name just… never mind.
Whee, I’m doing it! Look at me on my pony Mike!
Wait, this packing slip says, “Thank you for purchasing this mare.”
Whoops. Michela then.
You bought this?!
Weeeelll, I might have ordered it yesterday while you were sleeping. Also, I might have used your credit card.
Why not? Mine would have maxed out when you added the instant overnight shipping costs.
WALLOP! WAP! Whack! Whop! WHUMP! WHAM!

Also, here’s a clip in case you are one of the very few people who don’t know what a pushmi-pullyu is.
I write about, with, for, and around kids all day. (Well, maybe I do the dishes too. Sometimes.)
