The Blog of the Week is... Charleston's Secret Word by Dr. John Abess


As a nod to Dr. Abess' clever call-out of our low-profile native word (meaning an "expected gift"), Grit editors thought it would be nice to offer you one.

Unexpected beach visitors...



Why doesn't this one get old? The girl who stands up on the trash can at the end is fantastic.
