Okay I just came back here to see what words I’ve not seen whilst I took a bit of a hiatus, and this immediately made me smile. I think mostly thinking about which one of us must’ve put this in our list of words (pocketcanadian, I’m looking at you).
You see, I am british and I iron things so that I don’t look unkempt. My canadian friend across the seas finds this literally painful. In particular when I show her my nice neat stacks of freshly ironed clothes on the kitchen table, (including bed sheets…cue canadian horror). One time I convinced her that I actually ironed my underwear and socks (freshly laundered knickers, why not?), and the horror it invoked…oh you should’ve seen it people.
