I am afraid I am more Southern than I would have ever imagined. I was working on my latest book tonight and one of my characters was in someone’s house who had passed out from drinking. He was going to order this person a pizza or something to eat when they woke up. So, he decided to look for a phone book or on the fridge for one of those magnets that some pizza places give out so you always have their number handy. I actually typed the word frigerator into the document and was puzzled when the automatic spell check put a red line under the word. I could not figure out how I had spelled frigerator wrong. I tried adding a “d” and taking away an “e” and finally I got out my dictionary. I sat there in shock and awe when I did not find a listing for frigerator.
Somebody call Jeff Foxworthy. You might be a redneck if… you think frigerator is an actual word… Who would have thunk it?
**Disclaimer** I have been sick and taking prescription strength cough medication. I think that alleviates me from all humiliation and persecution, right?
