Leg Loss pt. 5

Whenever Ian and I would play cribbage he would always say “Margret!” in this nasally voice when he gained a point. I think this is a carry over from his childhood, but eventually, like all things Ian said, I started saying it to. Why Margret? Well when you score a point in cribbage it’s called “pegging” (not to be confused with the sexual definition of “pegging”). Peg is short for Margret where I am from, so hence – Margret!

That’s where peg came from. A double play on the term peg leg/peg’s leg and a connection to my past.
