  1. Haha, this is a fun word. I'm going to share it with my students in the after school program. They'll enjoy using it, too.

  2. There's plenty of walla walla in the office in our office on a lunchtime. Love it. The word, maybe not all the noise, that is.

    1. Now there's another good example of the word! There is a town in Eastern Washington State called Walla Walla - I was tempted to list it as a second definition. ^_^ Take care ~
