Many people know that I’m a bit of a word nerd. I’m fascinated with the origins of words and their usage in different parts of the world. Since moving to Cape Cod, we’ve discovered the radio program A Way With Words on WCAI in Woods Hole. After hearing many callers recounting stories of words, phrases and figures of speech, I decided to call in myself back in June. The episode was aired on September 11. I urge anyone who doesn’t live within the listening area of the show to listen to their podcasts. You just might learn something about scooter-pooting.
For anyone who might want to hear my 4 and a half minutes of questionable fame, I’m edited an excerpt of the show and have posted it here.
