Desperate Housewives Word Confusion
On last night's episode of Desperate Housewives the character Gabrielle (while talking about drinking cocktails) referred to an item that she called a "swivel stick." I had to hit the rewind button a couple of time to be sure I heard this correctly, and I'm afraid I did. I wonder if Eva Longoria misspoke or if the writers of the episode don't know that the small stick used to stir cocktails is called a "swizzle stick."
