But I wanted to share some of my latest Aussie slang acquisitions:
Watched a game of Aerial Ping Pong with Old Mates on the Weekend,Which translates to:
who were definitely Yokels who had their wobbly boots on over a few coldies.
Watched a game of Australian Rules Football with some friends on
the weekend who were Yobbo(uncouth person)-Locals who were drunk over
a few Cold Beers.
While taking the tram out on Saturday night I overheard:
Cool your tits mate!Which seems pretty self explanatory.
And finally, my coffee barista, while explaining that nothing his daughters do fazes him:
I've seen things that would turn your shit whiteWhich may not be Aussie in origin, but the fact that it was said so boldly by the person serving me coffee certainly is.
I've also been regaled with potty stories by a the staff at the Hertz checkout counter, so clearly they have all read Everybody Poops and are quite comfortable with the topic.
I successfully walked home at 3AM on a Saturday night, in heels no less. So that means:
1. I should have stayed out later
2. My ankle is healed!
