#Scotstober Day 31 #Neep, Tumshie, or Baigie

It’s the last day of Scotstober! I’m so happy to have made it all the way to the end–okay, shocked. And, more than a wee bit sad to see it go. It’s been a fantastic experience writing entirely in my native tongue for the first time. I’ve made new friends, learned new words, and rediscovered old words I’d forgotten.

Today’s word(s), neep, tumshie, and baigie, all mean the same thing. Turnip.

Mostly…

Okay, neep does mean turnip, but it also means a yokel, is a jokey word for head, and is also a word for a stupid person. Tumshie is a fun, colloquial name for turnip. And, baigie is the turnip with the purple top.

Well, that’s it for #Scotstober. Thank you all so much for joining me on this ride! See you soon. 😊
