Thread Name: Song Challenge... involving 'Willy'
Subject: RE: Song Challenge... involving 'Willy'
TJ... Two US students (Child Care) were on placement at the place I was working at. My manager suggested I take them out to show them the night life locally... which I did and whilst out I asked if they had been anywhere of historical interest in the UK... The answer was negative and I offered to take them out for the whole of the following day..... They agreed and I told them I would"Knock them up" at 7am.. which in the UK means give them a call... of course they laughed much and eventually explained that "Knocking them up" meant getting them pregnant in US. That evening we went to a night club... and one of the girls leaned over to me and asked "Do you shag"?? which in the UK means 'do you have sex?' .... it was my turn to laugh. The shag of course was a dance but unheard of here at that time........
Best wishes, Mike.
