  1. I’ve been trying to find a word or phrase my mother used. I’m pretty sure it’s Sicilian slang. I don’t know how to spell it. It sounds like in-dee-BOD-iga. My mother used it when she’d refer to my dog, he was a poodle and after he got back from the groomers he thought he was so special he wouldn’t jump on the couch by himself. Or the neighbor girl down the street who showed us her skit for drama class. I think it must mean prissy or affected. I’d like to track it down, any ideas?
