After six weeks in Edinburgh, yet only four outside of our apartment due to quarantine upon arrival, we've spent weekends exploring, dining and shopping, which means we're frequently hearing the English language with a Scottish flair, and we love it. This week we share some words and pronunciations we have grown to love (and now say) as well as a few American phrases we've used that have confused the locals. We also talk about how our weekend plans to be spontaneous, didn't turn out so well because, well, we didn't have a plan. The best thing that happened to us this week? We went to the movies for the first time since January — Christopher Nolan's Tenet is amazing — and share the theater-going experience with restrictions, course. We also discuss the slow increase of Covid-19 cases and the potential threat of current restrictions changing — either rolling back or being fully implemented again. Noooo! Let's do the right thing and not gather in crowds, folks, so we all can get back to living restriction-free lives!
