a little tweaking
Definition of tweak
transitive verb :to make usually small adjustments in or to <tweak the controls>; especially : fine-tune
There is another use of the word heard on a pretty regular basis around our home.
Example…one son to another son…“Dude!!! Mom’s gonna TWEAK!!!”
When used in this way it does NOT mean:
a) “Josh have you noticed that mom changed out the pillows to reflect a more fall-ish color palette?”
b) “I KNOW Jake, would you just look at the suh-weet way mom is incorporating those pumpkins and pomegranates into the decor?”
N to the O.
When used by my boys it means, “oooooooooo you did it now and mom is gonna flip/wig out.”
Problem is, when they use that expression I do anything but “tweak” because I find it so dang funny. It tickles my funny bone.
Anyhoo, I have been doing a little tweaking (the good kind) around here now that there’s a hint of fall in the air.
I added some upholstered chairs next to the wood burning stove (I think that thing is an eye sore and a decorating abomination, but everyone tells me I’ll feel differently in the ccc-cold Chicago wintertime. We’ll see.)
I wanted to create a cozy little sitting area in the kitchen and camouflage the black beast as best I could.
The little footstools were a Target find (my mom spotted them for me) and a perfect addition to the space.
Have you done any tweaking lately?
