Subject: "Surcee"; "Surcey"; "Surcy"

I know that this was discussed briefly (and inconclusively) here a while

back. Does anyone have any more info on what this word might be? I think

this question may be the next "gry" virus in the making -- this is the

third query I've had in the last two weeks.

Dear Sir:

I am attempting to find the origin and the definition of the word

"surcee", however it might be spelled.

I believe the word to be a colloquialism meaning a "surprise gift". I

have heard the word used by individuals from the Carolinas and was told

by one person that they saw a Boutique type shop in Atlanta, GA. named

"The Surcee".

I was referred to your site by the good research folks at who

were unable to locate any reference to the word in their no more than 15

minute search.

Can you help?

Thank you
