Subject: RE: BS: Great phrases you know and use.
Ane o the things I love aboot Scots is the combination o utility & humour in common phrases sic as these:
"Ye're pure deid brilliant" (You're very clever/ inventive/ splendid)
"She wis aye gobsmacked" (she was shocked/surprised)
"it wis cauld kail het agin" (cold kail reheated, i.e. "old news")
Anither favourite line: (Dinnae ken the source o this)
"Madness takes its toll. Please carry exact change."
