Aussie’s have always had a bit of a name for inventing words or having a slang word for well everything. Recently Cailin of Travel Yourself fame pointed out to me a few words she says we use a lot. Now Bobbi Lee from Heels and Wheels is also in on the game.
I was standing around the barbie tonight cooking some snags and sampling some find amber liquid and it got me thinking about it. I started making a list in my head of all the words I could think of and I’ll be buggered I thought, they aren’t just having a lend of me.
We have words for everything. Looking from the outside in budgie smugglers and white pointers could mean all sorts of things but trust me, one you’d be spewin to be caught wearing especially if your crown jewels are showing. The other, well your likely to end up in a blue if your caught perving on.
It was at that point I noticed I had burnt my bangers and the mozzie’s were eating me alive so I hopped in the ute and headed to maccas for a bit of tucker and the bottle-o for a few more coldies. Lucky they are only a couple of click’s down the road eh?
One things for sure, our fair dinkum attitude and willing to call anybody mate will defiantly make for a rip snorter of a trip when I head off in June.
