This week's Cajun Thing is a phrase...
La galle n. [la gäll]
"La galle" is a term that Cajun folk use to describe a general feeling of fatigue and laziness.
This is one of Mom's favorite terms to use after she and Dad return from a jaunt to the casinos on the Gulf Coast.
"I don't feel like doing the laundry. I have la galle!"
To Mom's credit, she does the laundry anyway. :P
