    • Sorry! The words are often easy for some and hard for others – sometimes they trigger an idea and sometimes they just baffle. I know the feeling! But I’m popping over now to see what way you went in the end 🙂


    • I thought you would enjoy this theme, Elke, I added in for you after the mobile one.
      It’s a term for phone that has always stuck in my head as it’s so different to both US and UK English

      • There are jokes about it in German because it’s not the only term which Germans think are English and are not. Another favourite one is a fanny bag or bum bag which long ago used to be a “Wimmerl” (funny enough, just like that) which is now called a “body bag”. 😁

        • Of course, we have issues with the fanny bag. But body bag is worse still. I’m glad you told me about that one, or I’d be looking for dead bodies 😉
