I never realized just how many Yiddish words have entered my daily vocabulary until I moved to a place without a healthy Jewish population. I miss hearing it routinely, there are so many words that are just perfect to use, and fun to say.
"Just gonna schlep these tchotchkes over here..." "Gonna grab a little nosh, be right back!" "Ah, don't pay me any mind, I'm just kvetching." "Man, she's got some real chutzpah! You know?" "They're just schmoozing over there, I'm not one for that kind of kibitzing." "That's his whole schtick, you know? Being overly schmaltzy...."
"... What do you mean you've never heard that word before? Really?" X3
