I've been working on my jaywalker socks. They are coming along nicely if I do say so myself :) I treated myself to a new book last night too and I can't wait to start on a project out of this book. Well.......it's happened...... My son is starting to get some New England "slang". I guess I call it slang because it's not what I'm used too. But today, Jacob's teacher gave him what I have grown to know and be called a Sucker. Now here in Manchester, most places call them a "Lolly" or "Lolly Pop". Well, Jacob was talking to me on the way home while eatting his "sucker" and referred to it as a "Lolly Pop". Now...my delima...is when we go back to KY and he talks of a "Lolly" or "Lolly Pop" what on earth will the think?!?!?!!??! OK OK no one else will probably notice.
I just recall the day I was at the bank with both boys and the gal behind the counter asked me if the boys could have a "Lolly". I'm sure I looked at her blankly.... I asked "What the heck is a "Lolly"?" She held up a Tootsie Roll Pop, (Yeah THE GOOD STUFF), and I was like, "OH!! A sucker!", and in return I got the same blank stare I probably gave her. Anyway.... just a funny thing that happened that I thought that I'd share.
Now... go have a sucker...or a lolly... or a lolly pop. What do you call them?? Leave a comment and let me know! :)
