Apparently, Americans don’t use the phrase ‘cock up’.
When I say it, I think they are shocked that I just used the word ‘cock’ randomly in a sentence. As if I would! 😉
(Cock up = another word for ‘screw-up’; British slang for ‘mistake’.)
P.S. I tried to look for an image to accompany this little bit, but I shan’t add one since they were all rather rude, as you can imagine! 😉
This week I wrote an expat piece about how great Maryland is. You can read it shortly when it’s published, lucky you.
Then I read this in an article:
“Maryland is just The Wire and people tying sweaters around their shoulders.”
“Everybody in Maryland has very sensible names like Bob and Susan.”
“You do not want to be on a long car ride with someone from Maryland.”
“They’d bore you with crab cake recipes and stories about how great Maryland summers are.”
How rude! 😉
Today I went on a drive-thru bender.
Drive-thru post office.
Sadly, no drive-thru liquor store. (Not in Maryland!)
It seems that everyone in America-land is either graduating, attending someone’s graduation or generally doing something graduation-y.
I’m going to enroll in high school next year just so I can do that too. 🙂
