I guessed that one and he said no. You were close though, you just swap one of the first o's with a u. Brouhaha.

Is it possible that it's an entirely made-up word that she invented as a substitute for swearing?

No I recall the word as something that made me think "Wow, I've never heard anyone use that in everyday conversation, thats really unusual!" But it was a word I had heard before.

Dammit, this is really frustrating me. I keep bugging her and she has no recollection of the word, or any antiquated words she uses in her everyday conversation. But I've heard her say it twice!!

So Synch, I take it you and your coworker never figured this one out?
