And I thought I spoke English
Nifty words I’ve learned:
Ta: It’s sort of a brief version of Cheers, which is Hello, Goodbye, Thanks and anything else you want it to be. You would say Ta if someone opened a door for you or let you pass on the escalator.
tramp: a bum, like the people hanging out by the bus station. Isn’t that cute?
rocket: lettuce, when served with a main dish
coriander leaves: this is what the Brits call cilantro
tom-AH-to: do not say to-MAY-to; people will comment.
bubble and squeak: when you take the leftover vegetables from dinner and fry them up in a pan at breakfast. I couldn’t remember this one for awhile and was saying “giggle and squirt” which The H found amusing.
