Dig out the tinfoil ball…

Faithful reader Jo brings up one of my favorite Yorkisms – tinfoil!
She wrote recently: “Here’s a ‘York-ism’ to consider that I heard from a native Yorker today. ‘Tin foil.’ As in aluminum foil. I must admit I have not heard that expression in a very long time.”
I love the word tinfoil. That’s what I call it. I can’t say al-um-in-um. I say “al-um-nim-um” or something dumb like that. So tinfoil works better.
But do you remember what I don’t like? People who SAVE their used tinfoil. Bah, humbug to that!
