Whisper Down the Lane

Last week we were at a friend’s house who is also Indian, but who moved to Canada when he was in middle school and therefore has much less of an accent. Varun, J and I were deciding where we should go to hang out when Varun said, “You decide, J, you know the snake in the woods.”

J and I look at each other, baffled.

I turned to Varun and said, “The snake in the woods? What does that mean?”. He replied, “Well, J lives around here so he knows where stuff is”. J looked enlightened and exclaimed,”OH! This neck of the woods! Thisneck of the woods. The snake of the woods! I get it!”.


What do you think? I'd love to hear from you!
