they still won't let me in belvior castle (how on earth is belvoir pronounced beaver???????) or at sealed knot reenactments
So it's happened to you, you have been living in America so long you don't know how to pronounce British place names
point of order. belvoir is of french origin
i did actually know that
but i agree i have been in the united states too long. i sometimes forget to put a U in words and a mix of a southend, leicester and brooklyn accents confuses everyone. i go into dunkin' donuts and ask for an extra large coffee, half and half and four sugars and they still give me an iced coffee with no sugar and i can't even talk about what happens in starbucks, i have had to bury it in my subconcious as it is too horrible to contemplate.
oh and i say the "uppy downy thing" (lift)
