Of all people... it was my loving husband that called me out! And damn quick I might add. Claiming that SHMANCY was not my word at all and that Fancy Schmancy had been in circulation for years.
To this I rubut... TOO TRUE! However, schmancy (as in fancy schmancy) is used as either an insult to high class or as a high brow word for a common item. SHMANCY, on the other hand, is positive and uplifiting... all about the good and shine!
The dictionary is full of similar words with different meanings:
Here / Hear
Heard / Herd
Hair / Hare
(why so many 'H's?)
There / Their
So, now we add schmancy & SHMANCY!
This is my argument and I am standing by it!
