I have an issue with Dunkin’ Donuts, and it is this: the commercial that runs on the radio states that “American runs on Dunkin'”.
This is, me thinks, fundamentally wrong. You cannot run/live on donuts, and for a country trying to shed pounds, declaring that you can is a little bit naughty.
I recently went into a Dunkin’ Donuts and simply asked for a green tea. Is that it? they asked. Yes please, just a green tea. They were horrified. Note to Dunkin’ Donuts – I do not need cream or sugar with a green tea.
I am a bit sad that I cannot vote today. I want a sticker saying “I voted”, but I can’t have one because I am not entitled to vote. Shame, because those stickers would co-ordinate beautifully with today’s outfit.
Speaking British, innit
I have been wondering if people don’t understand me at the moment, or if I am generally talking a bunch of tripe. The latter may be the case, but I think moreover that it is because they are a little taken aback when I spout forth in the Queen’s English. I have noticed that when I talk to Americans they seem to frown at me a lot.
Some people ask me to repeat things – is this because they don’t understand? Sometimes, they ask me to say it again and this is followed by the “I love your accent” thing. I guess it will never go away. I do like it 🙂
Today I have been thinking about Rich Tea biscuits, and how I would very much like one. They dunk so beautifully in a cuppa. Please can someone send me Rich Tea from the UK. Having rifled through Harry’s Halloween candy supply, I can declare that I do not like American candy or chocolate. Dairy Milk is also required.
Words have different meanings
There is a place called Jiffy Lube just off the highway, which makes me giggle. No where on earth, except a sex shop in Amsterdam, should be called Jiffy Lube. (For clarity, it is an oil change place.)
Also, would UK citizens trust a fertility treatment centre called Shady Grove? Shady = dogdy = who knows where the sperm / eggs have come from. I think about this every time I hear the commercial.
