Annette was telling me recently about Americans attempting to describe or use common (or in the example I am about to give, slightly archaic) English colloquialisms. Here’s the one she described that I plan to use for the next few weeks – in response to a statement, in an effort to be affirmative:
“I’ve got to cocoa!”
Also, the DVD set of Father Ted (a show which until today, I had never seen) arrived – I think we’ve watched about 2/3 of the entire collection in one go. I should have watched it before, it’s very good, in a Black Books kind of way. Also arrived in the bundle, some of my Jeeves and Wooster DVDs! Huzzah! They’ll be watched later on.
