...or does "Moxie" sounds like something obscene you'd find scrawled on the walls of male public toilets at the turn of the century? "Do you Moxie?", "Be my Moxie", "Charles loves to Moxie", etc.



It's probably because the Moxie boy looks like a 1920s twink.

Admittedly, I have no idea what Moxie is. Please, enlighten me - is it a bodily fluid? Is Moxie secreted from the mox glands of buck deer in spring, perhaps?

(I'm having such fun finishing this essay, can you tell?)

Moxie is an old fashioned carbonated beverage from the east coast of the US. It's similar to Coca Cola, but sort of weird tasting. You probably know this already, but it's also an American slang term from yesteryeah. I'm not really sure what today's equivilent would be, but it would be used like "She's got moxie!". "She's a tough broad who knows what she wants!". Or something.

You see, I hear "she's got moxie" and I think "antibiotics!"

Ooh, he looks a bit like Marcella Detroit.

Hmm.

Probably time for my medication...

Does she like to Moxie, perchance?

Or is it just Charles?

I really wouldn't know, but you should give serious consideration to getting 'em to sponsor your blog.

Every time you mention the product = potential ker-ching!

;o)

She's got moxie means she's got spunk, or guts, or - pardon my french - balls.

You, for example, have moxie.

Well, if I've got Moxie, Gabriel's got it too by now. ;-)

My spouse drinks it, it's got anise, birch bark and a bit of slippery elm bark as well. She loves it, but I can't stand the taste. I don't much like licorice or anise, so it tastes awful to me. But you can get it in the stores around here. They even make a diet version.

Sounds a bit like Dandelion and Birdock, which I can't abide. I can only cope with anise in absinthe.

He might be a 1920s twink, but he looks like he's going to kick my ass if I don't drink Moxie.

He might kick your ass, but you could smear his lipstick. He needs it to live.

Maybe I should amend that to, "he looks like he's going to try to kick my ass." I don't think he'd do much except bitch slap me silly.

I haven't forgotten about your sexy poet cake drawing, by the by. I've been too wrapped up in ResumeLand to work on it, properly.
