Q & A

Do we have a language barrier with our friends across the pond? While watching re-runs of
candid camera, there was a segment on traslation from british to english. Some thoughtful words.(do you know what they mean?)“I left my specs and brolley in the boot,it’s a rather great brolley!” Or what’s this? “I need to go to the ironmonger for a vaccume” Or,“I want a cuppa and crisps quickly!” What was especially funny was the young man asked by an stranger on the street to help translate from british to english. The guy tried by repeating what the lady from Britin was saying as if it was common knowledge. He did figure out cuppa was coffee or tea as in a cuppa coffee. See if you can figure out the rest. No fair UK girl, we know you have the answers being bi-lingual and all LOL! Connie
