Reminds me of what my Russian grandmother used to call "mishing" around--again in small spaces.

Just got this from a friend. I thought it might be in DARE, but I don't have the Ms. Anyone help? Rima
So my sister-in-law is telling us about their new kitten and say's "He's mizing about in Jack's beard." Hmmmm, mizing. Vas iz das, I ask. Eventually I learn that "mizing" (to mize, mize, mized) is an Oklahoma (possibly mountain William Oklahoma) word meaning to search in a small, crowded place for goodies. One might mize in a purse, but not on a table.
