Plap. That 4 letter word that few people know how it entered the world.
One fine Wednesday afternoon, 3 CIT's (Counslers In Training) at a summer camp were goofing around writing on the whiteboard while the campers were playing Flashlight Tag. Drew wrote "Drew is playing" on the whiteboard. The y was messed up and looked like this. (Below) So I thought it said "Plaping". That sums it up, practically!
So, what is Plap now?
Plap has been used in many places. When planning "Thirsty Thursday", the weekly water day at this summer camp, a camper suggested making "Slime" for our Slip N' Slide. I suggested we call our slime "Plap" in honor of the funny day before. Of course absolutely no one but a few other CIT's knew what this word meant, but we all started cracking up. :p We didn't end up making slime becasue of the full schedule, but there are other meanings and wordplays that this word is featured in...
