Did your Mum, Dad, grandparent, aunt, uncle, or anyone else call you by such a name when you were mischievous when you were little?

scamp

little monkey

scallywag

don't remember being called tinker ................. I was also a very good little girl .............. but I had friends who were called "little tinker", so I knew about it. And it was always said with love.


I use the same words now for my 3 year old grandson ............... who is a real scallywag!

I was very thin - my Dad used to say "with thin legs like that she should be able to sing like a lark" If only I were thin these days

Daughter had to interpret "scallywag" to her husband ...................... Canadian, you know.

He thought I was calling his son a bad word :-D :-D :-D
