Schlock

It means cheap or trashy in Yiddish; I had to look that up. The only Yiddish word I know is "schlep" and I'm not even sure I spelled that right. I learned it from my grandmother who used to pretend to be Jewish when she was a teenager in New York. Apparently they had dances in the temples - or somewhere that was just for Jews and she sneaked in there to dance. I probably got the story wrong, but I shouldn't have because she tells it every time I see her. I wonder why older people tell the same stories...
