Pain in my bingey

ABI Brother queried Mother when she was complaining of pain in her bingey. What are you saying Mother? What is bingey.

As she was telling me the story on the phone, I became a little alarmed. Do I really want to know about my mother's bingey, pronounced BIN-gee.

I very much doubt that any of you foreign types will know the answer but maybe one or two Australians will without using Google. 

More about your bingey tomorrow. Please do not email me photos of your bingey. Thanks.

  2. Had to resort to google. First result returned couldn't be right but I think I know now. I'd never heard it before. I wonder if it is regional?

    1. MC, I did not get an immediate result from Google, but I did find it. I don't know if it was regional. I think not.

  3. I have a guess. I googled and found the word but no definition. I am waiting with bated breath.

  5. I cheated and looked it up, and had a delightful read on other Australian words and expressions as well. Do you have the word "hiney/heinie" there? A bingey picture is less risque than a hiney pic at least :D I hope your mother's pain resolves.

    1. Jenny, I do know of the word hiney but I had forgotten it. I don't think it was ever used by non Aboriginal people though.
