Word of the Week

Spendy: (spendē) adjective. 1. Word used in MN (and I’m sure other places…although my East Coast and West Coast friends weren’t sure about it) to mean expensive or costly.

 

“Oh geeze, that walley is pretty spendy…I’ll just get the tator tot hotdish.”

 

 

 


Side Note: I didn’t realize that this wasn’t a widely used term until last year…


Do you use spendy? Where are you from/where have you lived that you noticed its use?

Word of the Week

Pop: (pop) noun. 1. A sugary sweet carbonated beverage, soft drink. Also known as soda, coke.

 

 


Side note: I thought someone was teasing me because I was from Minnesota and we say ‘pop’, by offering me a pop…so I said “Sure, I’ll take a soda”…to later realize that in Alaska, they do indeed use ‘pop’. Home Sweet Home.
