This week, my cousin’s three year old boy coined the phrase “phew-o-rama”.
I can’t measure up to such neologistic talent but here are two of my favourite bits of personal slang:
1. Getting Rosie on it or Rosie-ing up.
Rosie-ing up is often used in a slightly more general context. For instance, last week I Rosie-ed up and washed my car, constructed a cot and moved a load of boxes in one morning.
2. Come on Vera/ Come on Agnes
I shout these interchangeably at all slow or dithering drivers. So wrong– but I am entirely unrepentant and so I am not going to pretend otherwise. I’m also pretty sure that I am a slow and dithering driver and I don’t mind if you call me Agnes.
