If you "touch up" a woman in Britain, she'll call a cop (molest is almost synonymous)

We would say 'touched' rather than 'touched up' my life. It's like 'visit' and 'visit with', or 'beat up' and 'beat up on' - being a smaller country, we haven't got room for so many words as you left-siders.

WassaiL! V
