Lagniappe/Down the Rabbit Hole (Music)

"Down the Rabbit Hole!" Lisa brings changes, in theory, each time but it’s always upbeat …a good way to wake up and start your day! Then- Edyie Mae "Lagniappe" is a cajun word used in the New Orleans area meaning “a little something extra”. Mark Twain wrote about the word Lagniappe in Life on the Mississippi. He said “we picked up an excellent word, a word worth traveling to New Orleans to get, a nice limber, expressive handy word - lagniappe”. Twain further described how New Orleanians used the word when engaging in business transactions. He said customers would say “give me something for lagniappe”.Merchants responded by giving them “a bit of licorice root, a cheap cigar, or a spool of thread.” Today, lagniappe would be that extra bagel in a bakers dozen.
