I think I will just change some vocabulary
I have decided to add three new words to my deep Texas drawl. I love the British words queue(line), bloody(anytime you want to cuss something), and spot on(thumbs up, aok, okie dokie). I really like these words, and I wonder why we gave them up when we came over from England? Maybe there were no lines in America when the English settled. Come to think of it, why would there be? And we never did really create an American all-around word to cuss something. We were much more creative; we invented specialized words for cussing things and people. For example, darn/piss when it’s level 1, damn/shit/hell when it’s level 2, and the big one (the F word). This one transcends all levels with people over 50. Maybe the new “Frickin” is our parallel to the English bloody. I’m not sure why we replaced spot on with such wimpy words when we were supposed to be the “rugged pioneers.” How weak is aok compared to spot on?
Another thing I’ve heard the Brits do is to say, “We need to go to hospital.” We would put “the” in there. I wonder why. I’m just wondering a lot tonight.
Just trying to improve my vocabulary to keep my brain cells alive.
