Cajun Word of the Week #2 - Gradoux

I'm excited about all the feedback I've received from the first installment of the CWotW! I've even had two submissions already. I'm featuring one of those this week and the other next week.

Gradoux [gRä-dōō]
1. junk or stuff; usually of the unwanted or unnecessary variety
2. a mess

Ex. "Chere, you'd better clean that gradoux off your shoes before you get in the house!"

Thanks to my lovely friend, Amy, for submitting this word! As Amy said, "I use it for crap, dirt, grunge... whatever."

FWIW, I'm hoping that one of my editor friends will chime in and let me know how I should represent a rolling R in the pronunciation of this word.
