A SECRETARY lays out finger food. They wait for her to leave
before they speak.

What is finger food?



VIVIAN:

"Aw, he was sweet. And boy, was he good looking, y'know, dark hair and eyes. The chicken hawks were on him all the time. He hated that."

What is chicken hawks? What are chicken hawks? (which verb I should use, is or are?)

Many thanks!

Hi Tianshan,

Finger food is usually bite-sized snacks etc. that can be eaten with the fingers.

Hope that helps.

It should be "What are chicken hawks?" The phrase in question apparently refers to predatory people. (Red answered your question about finger food.)
