doesn't everybody speak yiddish?

i grew up in a yiddish speaking home.
at least it was yiddish speaking when my parents didn't want me to know what they were talking about.
there are some yiddish words that are just really great.
in just a couple of syllables, you can be so emotive.
oy vey is one of them.
oy vey is a tragedy.
it's oh shit to the nth degree.
there are some other great yiddish words.
but until i learn the correct spelling...
