I was listening to Simon Armitage (poet/writer) on the radio yesterday, when he bowled me over by saying "Most of us a born with language as a free gift". I love language; speaking, reading, writing,..
But there are things people say which result in me physically cringing before your eyes.
On my little blog, I vow I will never utter the following phrases.
1. 'Curling one out'
2. 'Jog on'
3. 'You al'right chick?'
4. 'On a proper downer'
6. 'Nearly split his difference'
7. 'Rubbing tummies'
8. 'Lady garden'
9. 'Proper buzzin'
10. 'Coffin dodger'
Please feel free to add your own to the list. Language is a gift, after all!
