    what is this word?

    Hi,

    I heard from TV series a few weeks ago.

    The woman said to her son and his boyfriend, "You two are sitting too far apart! S-cooch (that was what I heard) over!" (She wanted two boys to sit closer.)

    I've been trying to find this word in dictionary but I couldn't find anything. I know what she meant but I can't spell this word.

    Please help.

    It might be that the word isn't listed in the dictionary. (It might be too new.) For spelling it, use your imagination.

    "scooch" means to slide or move

    "scooch over" means to slide over and get closer together.

    It rhymes with "pooch" (term for a puppy or dog)

    We use that word all the time. Scooch over. I would have spelled it "scootch" but apparently the current dictionaries that list it don't agree.

    Is there room for one more at the table? Sure, we can all scooch.

    I'm so curious about this as well. Is it a slang word? I just found its definition in Urban Dictionary: scooch

    Thank you.

    Maybe it comes from "scoot over" (which means the same thing).
