When I was a little girl growing up we had this long stick that we would put in to the cistern to see how much water we had left...I loved that "dipstick".
I used to call my grandson "dipstick" when he did something really silly. One day I called one of the other kids a "dipstick" and my grandson broke out in tears. When I asked him why he was crying..."My name is dipstick...you can't call him a dipstick". It is a name of endearment between the two of us.
