Southern Word of the Week - Buggy

After getting a write up at AlabamaBloggers.com I was inspired to define a new Southern Word.

Buggy
(n.) Hey mama, go get me a buggy; I can't carry both gallons of milk and this loaf of bread.

A buggy, to those outside the south, is a shopping cart.  In the U.K. they call it a trolly which is more like our term rather than the generic shopping cart.  The people that call it a shopping cart probably also call a Coke a soda, and a Kleenex a facial tissue.  Not that there's anything wrong with that, its just not how we do it.

Thanks Mama Hen. I didn't expect the write up, but I'm glad more folks can find me now! Suggestions are welcome.
