I like this and the definitions for 'fore'. The end was truly amusing. It's a good thing greatgrandmother was still alive, or we would never have had the answer to the reason for cutting off the end of the ham before cooking.

Solid writing here. I love how you transitioned between golf and ham, both questions I've wondered myself!

I really enjoyed this one. I didn't think I was going to. It seemed rather dry, but you hooked me in and I, too, wondered why. In the beginning, you see, I didn't really care why, but then you got me going, trying to imagine it said in 1850, with cannons. Your later example was perfect. I love that story and it sure fits here! I was like the person who did something, not knowing why. Since you taught me something today, I'll give you one quick tip: quotation marks always go outside of punctuation marks, like commas and periods. It's an easy tip to learn and you'll be using in countless more times in your writing. Very well done piece....and I even learned something, too!

This was cute, interesting, and entertaining. I really enjoyed this humorous piece. The writing was very good as well. Great job!

Aha, I found you! LOL. This was pretty good! I liked your examples with the Ham & pan and the explanation of "Fore" I've always wondered about that. Great job! ^_^
