Bawstin ( Boston)

Welcome to Bawstin ( Boston).  For those of you who have never been to "Bawstin", this is a good guideline. I hope you will consider coming to "Beantown" in the near future. For those who call New England home, this is just plain great!

Information on Boston and the surrounding area:

(1) There's no school on School Street, no court on Court Street, no dock on Dock Square, no water on Water Street.

(2) Back Bay streets are in alphabetical "oddah": Arlington, Berkeley, Clarendon, Dartmouth, etc. So are South Boston streets: A, B, C, D, etc.

(3) If the streets are named after trees ( e.g. Walnut, Chestnut, Cedar), you're on Beacon Hill.  If they're named after poets, you're in Wellesley.

(4) The South End is the South End. East Boston is Eastie. The North End is east of the former West End. The West End and Scollay Square are no more; a guy named Rappaport got rid of them one night.

How to say these
Massachusetts city names correctly (Say it wrong, be shunned):

(1) Worcester: Wuhsta (or Wistah);

(2) Gloucester: Glawsta;

(3) Leicester: Lesta;

(4) Woburn: Wooban;

(5) Dedham: Dead-um;

(6) Revere: Re-vee-ah;

(11) Waltham: Walth-ham;

(12) Chatham: Chaddum;

(13) Samoset: Sam-oh-set or Sum-aw-set but nevah Summerset!

Definitions of stuff:

(1) Frappes have ice cream, milkshakes don't.

(2) If it is fizzy and flavored, it's tonic.

(3) When we ask for Soda we get CLUB SODA.  "Pop" is Dad.  When we want Tonic WATER, we will ask for Tonic WATER.

(4) The smallest beer is a pint.

(5) Scrod is whatever they tell you it is, usually fish. If you paid more than $6/pound, you got scrod.

(6) It's not a water fountain; it's a bubblah.

(7) It's not a trashcan; it's a barrel.

(8) It's not a spucky, a hero or grinder,... it's a sub.

(9) It's not a shopping cart; it's a carriage.

(10) It's not a purse; it's a pockabook.

(11) They're not franks; they're haht dahgs; (Franks are money in Switzahland.)

(12) Police don't drive patrol units or black and whites they drive a "croozas."

(13) If you take the bus, your on the "looza crooza".

(14) "Going to the islands" means Martha's Vineyard & Nantucket.

Things not to do in Bawstin:

(1) Don't pahk your cah in Hahvid Yahd. They'll tow it to Meffad (Medford) or Summahville (Somerville).

(2) Don't sleep on the Common (Boston Common).

(3) Don't wear Orange in Southie on St. Patrick's Day.

Things you should know:

(1) There are two State Houses, two City Halls, two courthouses, two Hancock buildings (one old, one new for each).

(2) The colored lights on top the old Hancock tell the weatha': "Solid blue"= clear view; " "Flashing blue"= clouds due; "Solid red"= rain ahead; " "Flashing red"= snow instead (except in summer; flashing red means the Red Sox game was rained out).

(3) Route 128 is also I-95 south. It's also I-93 north.  Most People who have lived here all their life still don't know what the hell is going on with this one.

(4) The underground train is not a subway. It's the "T", and it doesn't run all night (fah chrysakes, this ain't Noo Yawk).

(5) Order the "cold tea" in China Town after 2:00 am you'll get a kettle full of beer.

(6) Bostonians think that it's their God-given right to cut off someone in traffic.

(7) Bostonians think that there are only 25 letters in the alphabet (no R's - except in "idea").

(8) Bostonians think that three straight days of 90+ temperatures is a heat wave but consider a foot of snow a "dusting."

(9) Bostonians always "bang a left" as soon as the light turns green, and oncoming traffic always expects it.

(10) Bostonians believe that using your turn signal is a sign of weakness.

(11) Bostonians think that 63-degree ocean water is warm.

(12) Bostonians think Rhode Island accents are annoying.
