Oh happy day! I am now the proud owner of snow boots. And I'll even get to use 'em this winter, as we're going to a winter family fun day with Zion's preschool tomorrow.
Check out this cool regionalism test! Actually, do more than check it out. Take it, and tell me what your score was. I *heart* regionalisms in a big way. When I lived in Boston my friends and I would collect them; Boston is a treasure trove of regional dialect. I got 47% Yankee on the quiz (Just barely) and Robert got 64% Dixie (A definitive Southern score!). Frosting/icing was our most amusing disagreement about what was "correct", and if you hear me say (or type) "the frosting on the cake" in the future, you'll know why!
