Mensagem:  My mother used to say "She learned him good."  (She taught him well.) 

My dad used to say "brickbat".  After about 15 years, I finally asked him what the heck he meant.  A "brickbat" is a piece/portion of a broken brick.  He thought I was so ignorant.  LOL  And he was probably right.  BUt I don't remember ever hearing that word used by anyone else.
