Pediddel – n. A car with only one working headlight.
Maybe pediddels aren’t so common as they used to be but we still see them around. That’s that car with one working headlight that might be coming on to you or behind you. It looks like it could be a motorcycle, but it ride far too quietly, and why would a biker ride so far to the one side of the road or to the middle? That’s no biker, that is a pediddel. Luck has been with the driver, it seems, since they are still driving around and have not been ticketed yet. Any car has the potential to be a pediddel. For some reason, those headlight never seem to go out, but when they do, driving down to the local C-store or grocery for a gallon of milk or a case of soda is going to be rough. If your car becomes a pediddel, you might feel a bit anxious driving at night. It’s not that the other drivers can’t see you, you just hope the traffic cops won’t see you. If your car does become a peddidel, just try to avoid night driving until the problem is fixed by hitting up an O’Rielly’s or even the Wal-Mart auto department. It will be so worth the trip.
