For some reason I have slipped into talking in a much more aussie way
than I was previously accustomed.
I am calling my new friends mate
all the time, and saying g'day!
instead of hi
. I may have even slipped out a beaudy
once or twice... but actually, I quite like saying beaudy
, so I won't worry about that.
I remember a girlfriend back home (been saying that a lot lately too - back home) used to get a little frustrated that I might let fly with a mate
here or there, because it was too generic a term for an actual, real-life, blood 'n' guts
Perhaps i'm feeling compelled to get back to my roots, now that i'm in this bizarre foreign country, so unlike my own. Perhaps I feel the need to reinforce my Australianity by talking strine.
All that being said, I have very much enjoyed all my new, very special, foreign friends and their attempts atta speaking da language. I have to say the winner so far is Dr. Bruce, and her gaaaahlic
Thank god the Canadians know how to spell
