The linguistic gumbo of Louisiana Creole & Cajun languages..."Making Groceries"

If you're Creole or Cajun,  you don't go to the supermarket...or do your grocery shopping...

You go "make" groceries!

"Make" is a transalation of the French, faire or do.  Creole and Cajun French are infused with French, Spanish and some African languages.

In my mystery, Pushed Times, Chewing Pepper, heroine Sarah Doucette Jean-Louis can make a mean gumbo!

But first she gotta go "make" groceries, mon cher!

Blurred reality and such. 

Distance is the coward’s blanket.
