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!
Best wishes on the final, final, and as always, a fun post. Kudos!ReplyDelete
