I was older than that when I realized that Chutzpah was the spelling for a word I'd heard all my life!You remind of that bit from Portnoy's complaint. I think I've quoted it here before, but I like it enough to post it again:I was already the darling of the first grade, and in every schoolroom competition, expected to win hands down, when I was asked by the teacher one day to identify a picture of what I knew perfectly well my mother referred to as a “spatula.” But for the life of me I could not think of the word in English.(He had thought 'spatula' was Yiddish.)
