Rooting around

May 17th, 2011

Sue was quick to remind me. An innocent slip in the local supermarket. Said I’d have a root around in the kitchen later. Fine northern expression. In England. But in Australia an entirely different meaning.

Left wondering what the Aussies made of the likes of rooting compost. Still, sheds some light on the holiday quip "Which ’route’ are you taking? Just the usual. The wife."
