Today is another virtually perfect day with sunny skies and temperatures in the 80's.
Every now and then I will be sharing a distinctive Ocracoke Island word or expression. Today's word is "fladget." It means a small piece or chunk of something, generally food, as in "Cut me a fladget of meat, please." It can also be used in other ways, as in "I tore a fladget of skin off my finger when I was opening clams." Look for more words in the future.
