I don't know whether the Keri reference is a Freudian slip or not. It's meant to read Sock Monkey, of course. And LJ won't let me correct the reference. :-P

Ugh.*

* - Note to self. Don't write polls at spare moments. Focus on learning how to spell. Though if I find something in Dublin, Georgia, that's called fiscuits and gravy I just might try it to say I did. The whole point of travel is the experience.

I don't know whether secritcrush ate haggis in Scotland or not, but if she doesn't try something like that (or blood pudding or kidney pie) I'll tease her no end and dare her to dine on fiscuits and gravy.

When I worked in Kentucky (Elizabethtown to be more exact; lived in Radcliff, which the town right outside Fort Knox) there was a Ponderosa on the two-lane highway between home and work. We'd stop there on occasion for a meal and one of the offerings was fried okra.

Being an Ohio boy who'd never left the state for any length of time before it was an interesting experience to eat "foreign" food. ;-)

I think fiscuits are related to fescue, which would make them green. And unless that gravy is white, you couldn't get me to touch the darn things. No matter how you spell fiscuits. *g*

You're so kind. :-)

I searched for fiscuit in Google and the most sensible thing I found was someone mispronouncing "fix it" in that way. Seems apropos, since the best thing I could do with the spelling on this post is fiscuit.
