Southern Word of the Week - Sack

(n.) [to a person in the grocery store] Can you put all my cold cuts in the same sack?
(v.) I'm just going to sack up all these leftovers so y'all can have something for lunch tomorrow.

Sack is a bag of some sort.  Paper, plastic even a canvas tote bag can be refered to as a sack.  The plastic kind are known for their versitility.  As a trash can liner for small cans such as one found in a bathroom.  A used plastic sack can also be used to carry lunches in. 

That's about all I've got for this one.  Hopefully y'all will have something for me in the comments.

You can also "sack" the quaterback in the game of football. Which is also know as a tackle for a loss!
