Just sitting here relaxing on a Saturday afternoon. I didn't feel like cooking lunch, so hubby is off getting us Domino's! YAY for pizza! I woke up at 8am to the sound of my son crying in his crib, so I took him into my bedroom and he fell asleep... again. I took a nice hot shower and had some quality time to myself. I love "me" time. Now the whole household is up and there is noise everywhere.
To get to the topic of this entry... My son had a dirty diaper (nappy,for you Brits) and I asked my daughter to change him. I told her he went caca and to wash his bum. She started laughing and said, "MOM, you became British?!??!?!"
I said,"why?". She said, "You said 'bum' instead of 'butt'." I think it's because we lived in Europe and here (where they teach British English) for so long, we are losing a lot of our Americanization of the English language.
I find that bum sounds better than butt! Don't y'all? Don't get me wrong, I don't use a lot of British terms. A lot of my British friends and I will always disagree with chips being fries and potato chips being crisps... Us American chicas will always have our stance on what we call food.
Chips are potatoes chips, not crisps
French fries are NOT chips...
I still think "American" English is the easiest. LOL and the most clear. *sticks tongue out at Saimah*
Now, yall got me on the bum... It sounds nicer.. But, I still use BUTT. LOL
