The people of Massachusetts have a funny way with words. It’s not just the way they pronounce them–dropping and adding the letter r just how they please–but how the words are deployed.
Take road signs:
They say “Thickly Settled” where others refer to a “Built Up Area” and warn of a “Blind Drive” where a “Hidden Entrance” is more commonly found.
After a few days of Cape Cod cuisine, the Crone finds herself a little thickly settled too, with built-up areas where once there were cheekbones, jawline and waist. She will need new idears for weightloss in Septembah and sees a lot of Boston lettuce in her future once she leaves New England.
