Wednesday's Word

Word: Bail (V.)
Definition: to consume, to impel---often to excess

“Hot day for fat folks, ain’t it?”
“Sure is. Must be ninety in the shade. Man ought to just hole up down sulla and bail the cider to him.”


“By the looks of that front end, them young fellas must have been bailing it right to her when they went off the road.”

(Definition from: "How To Talk Yankee", by Gerald Lewis & Tim Sample, copyright 1979, 1986 by The Thorndike Press; copyright 1989 by the First North Country Press)
