Culture on the Cheap
Greenpoint Photos du Jour: Jeszcze! Jeszcze! Jeszche!
The squirrels were were putting on quite a show yesterday at McGolrick Park. So much so a young girl in the care of (who I presume to be) her grandmother could not refrain from commenting about it. Which brings me to the title of this post. It was this word she kept gleefully shouting over and over: jesczche. I learned from her grandmother this means “around” in Polish. It is pronounced (more or less) how you say “milk” in Spanish: leche.
P.S.: Special thanks go out the my favorite employee at Stokrotka for assisting me with the spelling. She has become my unwitting (but enthusiastic) tutor when I purchase bath salts!
