I know how to say it, but not how to spell it
That’s not good, for an editor! But today, I wanted to post about a Pennsylvania Dutch-ism that describes how my daughter gets as the end of the school year approaches.
She gets “reutchy” or “rutchy” (meaning rowdy, can’t sit still, etc.)
I know you guys have to have heard that one! But how do you spell it? And what’s the German background for it? (Mark, help me out!)
