With all the talk these days about the dating rules in the United States of America -- the dating rules for for men and women -- Padiddle comes to mind! What does Padiddle mean? Padiddle means someone owes someone a kiss! A kiss? Yes! In the late 1950's, if a guy was out for the evening on a date with a gal, and the guy spotted a car with a burned-out headlightt, if he called it (shouted "Padiddle"), it meant he could claim a kiss from the girl he was with . . .
A wonderful young man who was out with Marash Girl one evening did exactly that: he spotted a car with one headlight out, shouted padiddle, and claimed a kiss, but no way was Marash Girl going to allow Jimmy H. to kiss her, nor would she kiss him, padiddle or not. He was just a friend. A good friend, but a friend nonetheless. Marash Girl reproved Jimmy H., and, of course, never heard from him again.
Too bad, because he was a really good kid. Oh, and he was NOT Armenian!
