It's weird; it really does feel like a "My Fair Lady" type of thing sometimes.

The only time I've really encountered the term was when I read Jerry Spinelli's "Maniac Magee" in grade school - which is situated in a town filled with racial tension, with blacks living on one side of the tracks and whites on another. No racism intended. If it helps, I used the term to mean...

BTW, the reason I've never said anything (am not arsehole) is that I think it's rude and superficial to bring it up--and not worth the risk of losing that sweet, sweet poon of hers.

So this girl I've been dating for a few weeks is really gorgeous, caring, sweet, etc. EXCEPT she comes from teh other side of the tracks (so to speak), and uses phrases such as: "I got..." (instead of "I have...")--I think she usually gets this one right, though. "I seen..." (instead of "I saw...") It's starting to bother me a little (especially the second one)...partly because sometimes it leads to confusion. Example: Me: "Hey do you like that unique thing I...

The silver knots are nice too, although not as formal as the double-sided ones. Honestly, I've been wearing my silk knots more and more regularly. Get a three-pack of various patterns at a Brooks Brothers or something. They're about $6, I think.
Your links don't work.
Price drop to $450! I mean, pretty good for such a wardrobe staple...
