I took the personality of my younger sister and split it into twins: Charlotte and Diane. Charlotte AKA Lottie has my younger sister's figure (all legs and bust) and then a lot of personality traits blown out of proportion like her animal obsession or propensity to talk very loudly. I decided that one of the traits I wanted to add was a judicious use of Yiddish. Though in the case of today, it's not Yiddish, but some random family word that sounds like Yiddish and I don't know who actually came up with it. Maybe it's even a corruption of a real word...Anyway, in my family 'kechuchul' is our all purpose term for cuddling the animals.
