Many years ago, about 30+, a friend of mine from West Va. told a story on
himself about a trip to New York City. After a long night of drinking and
having fun, he wound up in a diner and asked for some /mEk/, but no one
understood what he wanted. His astute friend from NC translated for him and
asked for /mElk/. He decided that NYC was not his town.
[mElk] is also heard here in the Twin Cities. Is it (still) common elsewhere?
