My dogs are boggled by the idea of being fully dressed, and they are disturbed by the rest of Dave's comment.

First Expos game I went to in that landmark, I ordered hot dogs and held up the line because the girl kept saying, "audress?" and I had no idea what she was asking until a kind anglophile behind me interpreted. She was already speaking English, as it turned out, but I'd never heard the term "All dressed?" in the concept of food, in either language.

Of course, I meant "anglophone" and not "anglophile." Most of the anglophiles had moved to Ontario several years before this encounter.

Mike - some of the anglophiles moved to New Brunswick - hence the reason I live in Fredericton today. (My In-Laws left during the FLQ crisis, bringing their kids - one of whom would become my Husband.)
