The Desert Sun Podcast #010

Once again I’m joined by Mike in Switzerland to discuss life overseas, the difference between an expat and an immigrant, schooling, and other things.

  1. Halfway through, during the discussion about the English language, Mike states:

    “…I had to train myself out of using slang, using colloquialisms…”

    Twenty minutes later, Mike says:

    “…tits akimbo…”


  2. Fay to succeed today you have to go balls to the wall, level with the gravel and pedal to the metal. (I’m not a native English speaker and I’d like one to explain to me what I’ve just said, please?)

  3. Mike, level with the gravel is a purely South African colloquialism. You might just as well have typed “Choon with the moon, china”

  4. @Fay – I may indeed have done it deliberately, in full knowledge 🙂 It definitely set the mental flag off as I was preparing to say it! 😀

  5. @Mike, it made me giggle on two levels, the first because I’d never heard “tits akimbo” before (I love it!) and second what I said in my comment.

  6. Oh noes, my cover is busted! 😀

    Well, it was going to be busted anyway since there’s a Return Fixture, where Our Gracious Host here perforates paper at 25 of your metric metres range!
