Word of the Week

Craic: (kræk) noun. 1. Word used in Ireland (& Scotland according to a Scottish lad I met) to mean “fun” usually to describe a good time.

 

“We had some good craic at the wedding. The wedding was good craic.”

 

 


Side Note: Not at all related to crack-cocaine.

 

 

Word of the Week

Rack: (rak) noun. 1. A case of pop.

 

 

 


Side note: I often think of rack as a word that should pertain to something alcoholic, like a flight, when not pertaining to deer. (Or the stories I’ve heard about ‘running the rack’…), so when my students say something about someone buying them a rack, I always need to pause and remind myself of where I am.

 

 


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.
