I’ve never had meshugana thrown my way as a description – but I’d been warned not to kvetch. A little chutzpah is good and strive to be a mensch, not a putz. I’ve known how to give a good spiel on occasion, once leaving someone verklempt much to my surprise, but I suspect I was being a bit schmaltzy. I thought these were simply New Jersey words until I was in my late teens and I became very proud of already knowing a little yiddish until I realized it’s not worth bupkis as this is the extent of my fluency right here.
