I like the word "Deal". But not in the modern sense.

My grandfather and people of his generation used the word "Deal" a lot in conversation, to describe any object.

For instance, "I was working with this deal and it came apart.", or "I was changing the tires, and one of the deals was stuck on so I had to break the bolts to get the deal off", or "Hey, hold this deal upright for me while I secure the other end."

I don't know if I'll ever hear it again in a sentence, as it is very old-timey, but it makes me think of home.

Interesting. My grandpa & my brothers also used that word that way. Or, “dealie.” Maybe it was a west coast word. Were you in Oregon then, too?
You brought me back to the family driveway on a sunny day, with cars, bicycles and motorcycles around. A simpler time.

The German word 'fisselig' (pronounced as "fhistle fish" ) conveys inexactitude and sloppiness that is elicited by another person's nagging.
