K - is for Kellep all slippery and green


Kellep




Not too keen that one. Hauling that killick over the slippery old kellep, like he don't have a klick, be lucky if he don't keel out with exhaustion.

-------
keel out - to faint

keen - intelligent

kellep - kelp, a seaweed, extensively found around the Newfoundland coast (pictured above)

killick - an anchor made of wood ans stone with wooden claws to grip the bottom. The wooden body encloses one or more heavy storms to weigh it down.

klick - common sense

My final, final exam is tomorrow and the comprehensive (need to get a 70 to graduate is on Tuesday. Things are still a little crazy here, but I'm getting closer. Thanks for all the well wishes with my exams!

    Hey, I had keel out, keen and kellep. I like klick. Mom used to say, "she hasn't a lick of common sense". Must be a derivative.
