We have a state holiday here (Statehood Day) so Friday totally snuck up on me and I went to bed without setting an alarm.  Sorry!

  1. What regional colloquialism in your area would baffle people from elsewhere?
  2. What’s something you call by a name that differs from what most people in your region call it?
  3.  What’s a normal food in your region that people in other regions might be weirded out by?
  4. What’s something in your area with an official name almost nobody refers to it by?
  5. What are the names of some convenience stores in your area?

Thanks for participating, and have choke fun dis weekend!
