Words You Need To Know To Get By On The Prairies

In Alberta, rather, I stay at a cabin and tie up my runners when I want to run. I get a 2-4 to celebrate May Long. And my underwear are now gitch. Now, I had a bit of an advantage moving out west -- my mother and I moved from Saskatchewan to Nova Scotia when I was quite young, so I grew up with terms like "kitty-corner" and "bunnyhug" in my vocabulary, still, though, use any of those words out east and people will look at you like you've got two heads.
