Dislike: sarnie

TRaney - 02 Apr 2021 10:41:54 (#12 of 133)

Like: unkempt

One of those words that are only exist as one half, does anybody say 'kempt'?

And one of those words that seems like a misspelling, like it should be unkept. See also discomfit.

Comes from comb apparently.

Ah! The delight in popping out for a sarnie and finding pret have started their crimbo range! Yuletide holibobs just around the corner!

#4: Floofy confuses me exactly the same as 'oop North'. Is it pronounced as in 'flew', or as Northerners pronounce 'up'? In which case it's redundant, as that's how fluffy is pronounced, as far as I'm concerned.

FleurDuMal - 02 Apr 2021 10:56:47 (#18 of 133)

I’m warning you, nemo ...

TRaney - 02 Apr 2021 10:59:55 (#20 of 133)

Yes, but she agrees it's a lost positive, which was the expression I needed
