Creek or Crick

Do you call it a creek or a crick? I have always called it a creek, but Mom would say crick. I often wonder if it’s indicative to where you grew up. For me, everyone around me, with the exception of my parents, called it a creek, so I call it creek. However, I love it when I hear someone say crick. It makes me smile and I always think of Mom. She often said, “you’re going to be up the crick without a paddle” if I didn’t straighten up. With that said, I was fairly easy, kept to myself and was known to entertain myself, which was a parents delight. But, I have a twin brother and holy fuck would he push some of my buttons. Oy. That is usually when I would hear, “you’re going to be up the crick without a paddle”.
