The Mason-Dixonary: Make

March 2, 2016 | By | Comments (3)

Hearing a certain word or phrase can tell you quicker than a road map that you’ve crossed the Mason-Dixon Line. Some terms are particular to the South, while others are just embraced more fondly here. Check back each Wednesday for more words that give voice to the spirit and soul of our region.

    Also:
    make do as in “No room in the budget for a new computer, guess I’ll just have to make do with my 2005 MacBook.
    and
    make up as in “Company’s coming, need to make up the livingroom.”

    That phraseology has another meaning that isn’t quite as complementary to the girl, if you re-read the sentence and stop and think about it.
