Slang words and meanings

Meaning of gool, gools, glue

gool, gools, glue means: These words were used interchangeably as the term meaning "home base" when playing tag. When the game of tag began, someone would specify what Gool or Glue would be, and that object would be the home base where one could be "safe" from being tagged. Similar to 'Base'. Alternative viewpoint: I grew up in New England in the late 70's and the term "gools" was completely ubiquitous as a singular noun. "Glue" was never used to mean "home base", but if "gool" was used, I never noticed. It's possible that "gools" evolved from "gool" through the expression "No gool(s) sticking!" (ie. don't hover around home base because it doesn't give other players a fair chance of reaching it.) Even as an adult, if talk of childhood games ever comes up with peers who grew up in different parts of New England, there's a nostalgic spark if "gools" (and notably not "gool") is mentioned as we all immediately recognize the word and at the same time note what a silly word it really is. (ed: which opened the door as usual for additional input and Arrigo sent the following in!) I am happy to see that the word gools appears in your dictionary. It was the first thing I thought of when I found out about your site, and, sure enough, there it was. It is erroneous to say it originated in the 1970s because the term was around the Phineas Bates elementary school in Roslindale Massachusetts (a neighborhood in Boston) in the 1940s when I was a kid. It was used mostly in the game of "hide and go se ek" similarly to the way in which the dictionary says it was used for "tag". The term "gools sticker" (pronounced "goolsticka") was also used. I have always wondered about its etymology. One of my theories is that it was a corrupt ion of the word "goal" that somehow took on an "s" at the end, perhaps as stated in the dictionary. Another possibility is a much older root from the archaic heraldic word "gules", which means "red" and is derived from the Latin gul a, meaning "throat". Anyhow, if a kid who was hiding touched the gools before the seeker saw him or her and got back to the gools first, then he/she would cry out "my gools 1-2- 3".
