  •  "Costly" is a wonderful word--my Australian (2+ / 0-)

    Portlaw, whenwego

    nieces still use it.  "Such-and-such is quite costly," they say.  I understood that word.  But when they begged me for an "icicle" in August and to drive them to the mall so they could buy "cozzies," I was mystified.  Then I learned that an "icicle" is an American popsicle, and "cozzy" is short for "swimming costume."

    Divided by a common language, that's what we are!
