Jaime was born and raised in Wisconsin....cheesehead! ;) She moved to Australia in 2006,where she lives happily with her husband,cat and beloved puppy.
She also shared some Australian slang with us that we found amusing...(I will list the US English version first,then Australian):
trunk of a car - boot (??) of a car
hood of a car - bonnet (is this a pioneer one?) of a car
have a look - have a captain cook ....wow,these just make us giggle :)
have some tea or coffee - have a cuppa.... ok,this one is more what we would expect
have a good afternoon- have a good arvo.... huh? :)
I think we would love listening to the Australians speak....I have heard that they call cotton candy "fairy floss" and popsicles "icy poles" ,which we think is really cool.Thanks Jaime for your lovely letter,which can be seen below:
