On Language (Addendum)

I remembered Graham's other compound word that I couldn't recall when writing last month's "On Language" post. Actually, Graham said it again this morning, and I thought, "That's it!!!"

The word is goodea, good + idea. As in, "I have a goodea!" Graham says this often, brightly, and confidently, but never with any elaboration. For example:

Graham: I have a goodea!

Me: You do? You have a good idea?

Graham: (nods heartily)

Me: What's your good idea?

Graham: (blank-stare pause... then) I have a goodea!
