So, a couple of random questions for y'all:

1) What do YOU call a water fountain? 
2) What do YOU call your grandparents?
3) Is dude now a national term, or is it still sort of a regional thing?
4) So, yesterday was 4/20. Is this actually celebrated anywhere?


1) A water fountain. :)
2) In English, grandma/grandpa; I won't include the Spanish.
3) It's used in southeast Texas. >>
4) Not really here, though I heard it is in California...?

1) Water fountain (though sometimes drinking fountain...not much of a difference to me)
2) Grandpa and Grandma (for both pairs, when the other pair was alive)
3) Depends...I can say "Hey, dude" here to friends in greeting and no one would think it was unusual, but it's not really common. Maybe considered silly or quirky, just a little bit.
4) Not that I know of...it's kind of a joke. Probably people who smoke pot celebrate it. I'm all for legalization!

Oh, and I'm in central IN. :)
