Lucky Bert #54 had no such qualms. Yesterday, he asked My Typist,
"What is brekkie?"
Brekkie This is the 1st meal of my day, usually 1 hour after my walk [or 1 hour before, on weekends]. My Typist makes it for me. She's not a bad cook and tries to make my meals delicious and nutritious. Last week I had eggs, bloodwood honey, vegemite, tuna, poached chook, grilled beef, oatmeal, lentils, carrots and celery and rice. I like variety. It can take My Typist 15 minutes to get my brekkie ready. 15 minutes is too long to wait when you're very hungry.
This isn't my brekkie but My Typist is too lazy to look for more piccies.
I hope that answers your question, Bert #54! Thanks for asking!
MORE iffy words that we've used in my stories -
Chuck up I do this quite often. My humans say this is because I am a connoiseur of street food.
There are many stories about my chuck ups in this blog. If you're not eating anything at the moment, you can read one HERE.
Cockies These are horrible dark brown thingos that sometimes crawl onto my bed [though my sheets get cleaned every week]. They have spiny legs and are not good to eat.
[Cockies should not be confused with cockroaches. These are humans who live in New South Wales.]
We had many cockies and other vermin over summer [though we are quite a clean house]. If you're not eating anything at the moment or have already chucked up, you can read about them HERE and HERE.
Mozzies These are horrible black thingos with wings that whine all night and drink our blood. They are very tiny and also not good to eat.
Arvo This is not the same as avos. Maybe you can guess what it is if we put it in a story...
My Typist often has a nap in the arvo [unless she had one in the morning]. I like to have a nap in the arvo too. We like to nap together. Sometimes, the nap becomes a big sleep and it's dark by the time we wake up. We always try to be up before my out-at-work human comes home from a day of hard yakka because otherwise, he might think we're bl_ _ _y bludgers and get the shits.
Bikkies My bikkies are nutritious low-fat multigrain ones. They're very cheap and boring. My humans' bikkies are called timtams. They're not so cheap unless they're on special, 2 for $4. They're also not boring and are about as lowfat and nutritious as a macca.
Timmies These are bonza bikkies! My Typist likes Chewy Caramel and Dark Chocolate. My out-at-work human likes Honey Crush. They can never agree on anything.
The way to eat a timmie is to chew off both ends, dip it in hot coffee, suck the coffee up through the bikkie so it melts, then gobble the lot. It's been scientifically proven that this is the best eva way to eat a timmie. I've never had timmies because they're chocolate and I could die if I ate them.
Thongs These are thingos my humans wear on their feet. They are in no way related to thingos some people wear on their butts. My Typist wears them even with pretty dresses. She can be a real dag.
Footy Uncle STeve loves his footy, we don't know why. He's such a bloke. Every year, Uncle STeve comes up to watch his Pies play. It's almost time for him to come up again. He likes to go walkabout with me when he comes up. I like to go walkabout with him too.
Kerfuffle I have these off and on. Mostly, they're tiny ones. Once, it was a very big one. My humans get upset when I have kerfuffles. I am kerfuffling less now that I am A Young Lady.
That's all for today! I hope you had fun learning these words. If My Typist made a mistake, please let her know. This is entirely possible because she's not the sharpest tool in the shed.
If you have any words you'd like to add to the list, or more questions to ask, please do so and we will try to help.
