In the interests of maturity I have refrained from posting about the subject of words and their sounds and how something in one language can mean or seem to mean something totally different in another.
Those who know me know that maturity is not one of my strongpoints so I have caved in and here is an example – some would probably argue that since this sign is pointing to me the word in question should probably be preceded by “Old”.
As I said this is just one example. The word actually means exit so we have seen it over and over again especially as we drive along the highway. Even after almost a year I can hardly refrain from making a joke about Aussies and bodily functions as we pass by these signs.
