Brunette and I were staying at a lovely property outside of Hermanus in South Africa. (At the time it was the Westin Arabella but is, tragically, no longer a Westin property.) We decided to walk around the grounds as it was too cold for the dip in the pool we had hoped to have.
We encountered a friendly couple from Ireland who had won their trip to South Africa. Brunette commented that she’s fond of Ireland. They asked her what her favorite town is. She promptly replied “Dingleberry”!
The other three of us looked quite surprised before she realized her mistake and corrected her reply to be “Dingle”. (It’s probably important to remember that she raised four boys all of whom helped to expand her vocabulary.)
Fortunately, the couple from Ireland got a good laugh out of Brunette’s answer and didn’t take offense. Goes to show that they know the same slang, some of it doubtless even more colorful.
Ever since that incident if anyone asks either Brunette or Blonde their favorite place all the questioner gets in reply is giggles. That is probably for the best.
