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 is fine, though I learned 'drinking fountain' as well.
2) Grandma & Grandpa. Others here call them 'Nana' and 'Pop-Pop'. 'Mee-Maw' & 'Pee-Paw'
3) Dude is everywhere, so far as I know (I've heard it in Ohio & Nevada), though some places it's used more than others, like CA.
4) My hubby reminded me of it yesterday (I'm in Ohio). "Celebrated" is subjective.
