Prawn



Keith and I honeymooned in Seattle and Portland. While we were there we noticed that people in the Pacific Northwest don't call shrimp 'shrimp', they call them 'prawns'. Which, to me, makes shrimp even more disgusting than they already are. Prawn is not a pretty word.
You know how in Lion King the word 'Mufasa' makes the hyenas shudder? 'Prawn' does that to me.

Praaawn.
Regional dialect is a funny thing.

    I always thought they were something different....I knew prawns were bigger. You made me curious:) Do you not eat them?

    1. Certainly not. Keith loves them though so I try a bite when he gets them but no matter how they are prepared I just can't stomach them.
