Of course, you are all correct! However, what else was this used for. What did it mean if someone said to you, "Talk to the Chimmie"?

This is 'the chamber mug' which was also referred to as 'the Lady's Piano'.It was so called because of the sound it would make when you pee in it.

Oh!the chimmie for many of us was all we had inside the house to ease ourselves at night. Does anyone remember what was the best thing to mend the chimmie when it starts leaking ?

When the chimmie leaks, just put some wax on it and let it cool. It then becomes as good as new again.

I had the absolute pleasure of getting to sit in on summer camp at TBWG when Miss Fern came to tell stories and sing (that was right before Dean put an end to camp!). Fern is so special and amazing. I loved learning the Jamaican independence song and loved the way she encouraged the kids to join in and do some teaching, too. I taught the "Judy, Judy, you no see nobody pass here" song to the kids in one of the afterschool programs at my job, and we had a lot of fun singing it around the room. I have the coat of arms she gave out at the end of the day pinned to my handbag. People are always asking me about it, and thanks to Fern I can actually explain what each of the elements represents! That was one of the most fun afternoons of my trip, and I thank Jeanne for inviting me and Fern for making it so great.

Chimmie for peeing in of course. My grandfather called his the bed glass. When it got old some people used it for a flower pot.

So what does"Talk to the Chimmie mean" and what else was it used for?


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of pageLink to this messageBy Rebecca on Sunday, November 04, 2007 - 12:17 pm:

I was told when someone was angry at someone else, they would hang the chimmie on the bedpost, hold up their hands and say, "Talk to the chimmie.", telling the other person what their opinion was of what they were saying.

I think all other uses I've heard of were covered above.
