What's for Pud?

Cute thing about people from the UK. If they refer to pudding for dessert, all that means is there's something for dessert. Pudding can mean pie, cake, or...well, pudding. Even cuter is shortening it to "pud."

I saw the reference in the last Harry Potter on page 92, and thought "aw, that's right...British book."

I was reminded again in the author's interview (spoilers!!!) where she says that reading the end of the book first is like "someone coming to dinner, just opening the fridge and eating pudding, while you're standing there still working on the starter. It's not on," she said.

Tee hee
