Just a little fun with our wonderful English language. Where I come from back in Michigan, we grew up using the word Cripes which is an actual word. My mother used it frequently as did my grandparents. Occasionally, I will let slip this word in Vegas which can earn me a funny look from someone. I get a laugh from this! What? Do you know what a Party Store is? They don’t seem to call a 7-Eleven or similar a party store either. I love my native language! Do you play with your words too? Well cripe, why not?
