I'm going to continue this series I began on the Facebook page a couple of weeks ago on the blog. That way there will be no crickets chirping here as I finish up my summer break. If you don't already know, my girl bud extraordinaire and I will be visiting London for a few days soon, so I thought I'd better study up on the lingo. It's been pretty entertaining so far on FB since helpful Brits weigh in and tell me I've got it all wrong. LOL. Hey, I'm just drawing from all the BBC TV and Terry Pratchett books I read. Here we go:
British Word of the Day: Nappy. "Of course as soon as I'd zipped Nigel into his snowsuit I realised he had a dirty nappy. Brilliant."
(This usage of the normally cheerful 'brilliant' comes wrapped in heavy sarcasm.)
(Note the British spelling of realized.)
(We say diaper.)
(I like parenthetical notes.)
