Apropos of nothing political….
We spoke to our dear friend Sharon, who used to live near us but, for the past 20 years, has lived in North Carolina.
She told us that a friend – also originally from the Northeast – was approached by someone selling raffle tickets for a worthy cause and agreed to buy a number of them. The friend asked what the prizes were.
She was told that one of the prizes was “tickets to the Herkins”.
“The Herkins”? She asked who or what “The Herkins” were.
They were tickets to see the local National Hockey League\’s Carolina team, the Hurricanes.
Dialects. You gotta love them.
Ok, back to politics, where we\’d all be better off if most practitioners could be sent to the penalty box. Indefinitely.
