I'm a subscriber to the online publication "Zester Daily". This week there was a dissin' piece on the use of the term "veggie" as a substitute for "vegetable". The author and most of the commenters (including me) agreed that it is kind of a childish word your Mommy might use in addressing a 5 year old. Of course this led into "foodie", which for many of us is like fingernails on the blackboard. Something about that "...ie". What do you think? If you think it's a cool term then maybe look forward to a "wedgie".
