Or “Wash Ashore.” I’m not sure if it’s one word or two, but it’s a new (to me) expression I learned here on Cape Cod.
My brother and I played at Olde Barnstable Fairgrounds Golf Course today…a superior municipal course run by the town of Barnstable. We were paired up with a guy named Mac, a retired local firefighter. Good guy. After the round, we sat down for a cold adult beverage or two, and in the course of conversation, I asked if he was a native Cape Codder.
“Nah. Been here 51 years, but I’m a washashore. And my wife never lets me forget it.”
“Wasn’t born here. Wife was.”
I love that expression. Reminds me of the attitude of the natives of more than one Connecticut town.
You gotta love New England.
