|Our dog, Spice Girl Loves sticks - perhaps this is more than she can chew|
Recently we had young house guests from overseas, drama queens as I like to call them. They are acting students. They mimic accents. Their observations amused us greatly.
Then as I unloaded the groceries she giggled hysterically at the milk. Three One Litre plastic bags of milk.
Other unusual items, cigarettes in packages of 25
Daily they walked through the streets of Toronto and did their share of listening to Canadians speak. They commented on the use of the work "like"in every third word, commonly used by the under 30 age group. The use of the words "absolutely" "totally" "and I go like" and "I get it". They also observed that Canadians apologize a lot and most have good manners. Eh? If they bump into you accidentally they say: "oops I am sorry". If they sneeze they also say "Excuse me".
Each evening brought new observations which amused us. Now they are off to the USA and no doubt the observations and imitating will continue.
