What is it they say...."The English and the Americans are two peoples separated by a common language"?
This is an ad for Mini that I saw in the English auto magazine Evo. Now I've been to the UK, and I realize we often have words and phrases in common that mean something very different in our two countries. Is this one of those instances? Can any of you who are American/English bilingual 'splain it to me?
You know what I'd like to see?
Once again the cops confronted a vicious criminal and had a shoot-out, and the law won. And right on que the media interviewed the perp's neighbors and they said what they always say: "He was a good boy. He never caused any trouble. I just can't believe he would do something like this."
For once I'd like to see a neighbor go on camera and say, "That was one mean little son-of-a-bitch. I mean, he'd steal the dirt from your flower bed just to have something to steal. And he'd pimp his grandmother if he could make a buck. I'm tellin' you, if the cops hadn't popped him, some of us would....er....I mean, accidents happen, you know?"
It's supposed to be 68 and rainy here in Dallas today, a definite step backward from yesterday's 78 and sunny. Oh well, it is what it is. Have a good day everyone.
