Cajun Thing of the Week #16 - "La galle"

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

I love your cajun "things of the week"...Here's one - "I'm goin' make groceries" - HAHA!! That means we are going to the grocery store!

Bet you could tell from my pictures that I was talking about the Gulf. I feel the same way about it. My mom and dad took us to Gulf shores/Pensacola/Destin EVERY summer as kids...we would camp on the beach, chase fiddler crabs and sea gulls, fly kites, and we ALWAYS had good eatin'! :) There are no other beaches like 'em! Hope you get to come home soon and visit them.

And after you buy Cajun groceries, you "put them up." Up where?

I have a la galle everyday. Now it sounds very important to be lazy.
