Subject: Re: pop one's fingers
We didn't ask this question in the DARE questionnaire, but anecdotal
evidence suggests that "to pop one's fingers," meaning 'to snap one's
fingers' (i.e., sliding the middle finger quickly off the thumb onto the
palm, making a snapping sound) is found chiefly in the South. Are some of
you familiar with the term? When? Where?
