    :rofl: So after Talking to Imi yesterday on Skype....I have come to the realization that sometimes I say things that have different meanings to you guys.:rofl:

    I try to be carefull....I remember I was commeting on a picture of someones son. I said...."He is such a Ham" :rofl: They thought I was calling him a pig...:blush: Ham is a good thing...I guess its kind of like whey you say Cheekey for the camera....or cute.

    I told Imi someting was Tart....To me Tart is a flavor...Like Tangie or Zangy...But Imi said a Tart is .... Well you know what Tart is.

    Same time when I first came on the forum I was called a Cow....I thougt I was being called Fat:rofl:

    Have you come across anything I have said that you would like to know what I ment:rofl:

    Just think it is funny that the same word can have some many different meanings:rofl:

    I think I have it all figured on for the most part. But I never thought that some things I say can come out as Odd.

    I told Wobbles once that I would Sponcer her to come to america.....:rofl:

    My fave transatlantic translation has to be fanny. Fany means bum to you Suz?? whereas it means something completely different here, I still sniger when I hear a bug bag referred to as a fanny pack. There are some cloth nappy's called fuzzi fannies and fanciful fannies

    Two things I have wanted to know,

    If you call trousers pants, then what do you call pants?

    Also if you call a bum a fanny, then what do you call a fanny?
    and for that matter if a bum is a fanny does that mean that men have fannies?
