Bangers are not some kind of gang but actually something you eat (and we all have eaten it as sausage.)
Aubergines are what you put in moussaka and this makes it sound more posh than saying, “I put eggplant in my vegetarian lasagna.”
Barbies are not what little girls play with, in fact, kids are not allowed near it since its where they grill their bangers and burgers.
“Pee” is not what you do in the toilet but that’s the price range I can afford (and happy to pay for).
Chips are also made of potatoes but they are not thin and crispy (those would be crisps!)—and they are said to go well with fish and vinegar. (and I, of course, still prefer ketchup!)
Courgette sounds more romantic thus the Brits prefer to eat this than the humble zucchini.
Jacket potatoes do not mean fashionable spuds in leather, they’re just spuds baked in their skin. (Ouch!)
When you’re chuffed, it means you’re happy and not irritated or itchy with rashes.
Runs are not what you do everyday to keep healthy---in fact, if you have them everyday, you’d get dehydrated and have to admit yourself into the hospital (so be careful what you stuff yourself with!)
A garage is not where you park your car and leave, its were you “fill” your car and leave. (Fill it with…what? Remember the previous post? Yes! Petrol!! Well done!)
Powerpoints are not produced by Microsoft, but you need to get your computers plugged into them to use your Microsoft (or Mac).
A coach is not somebody who yells at you when you shoot the ball into the wrong basket, its what you might want to take when you need to go out of town.
A jumper is not the coverall Dennis the Menace usually wears—well, actually, he might need to wear a jumper when its cold…
A chemist is not somebody who works at a laboratory, it's a place to buy your drugs, I mean, your medicine.
A hole in a wall is not what you haunt for if you’re on a gastronomic adventure but it’s where you might need to get money from if you do go on one.
The Subway is where you get a nice (and pricey) sandwich and the underground is where you catch the trains.
Broody is not when you are in the mood to brood but when you are in the mood for a brood (ie. bushel of babies!)
I could go on and on…but hey, I 'm still learning! Cheerio for now, mates!
