First of all, let me begin with a definition of the word “fodge” as I believe it to be an expression unique to the people of Lawn and their descendents.
Fodge (noun) Hand me downs. Goods handed down to a person after being used and discarded by another.
I am one of five sisters. My youngest sister Lynette, who lives in Miami……well, let’s just say, she $$$married well$$$. A couple of times each year, Lynette will send home a fodge of designer clothing, make up, shoes and purses, which is descended upon by the females in my family like a pack of wolves. Prior to getting cancer, I was lucky to walk away with a half a tube of Dior mascara. You can only imagine how moved I was when Mom and Dad swaggered in last month with a big box from Florida, and a hand written note: “Make sure Florence gets first pick of the fodge!” Now I have Coach purses coming out of the yin yang.
Tip: It is okay to use your cancer to get free stuff.
