Here’s something new for 2017! I’ve dubbed Wednesday ‘Word Nerd Wednesday’, which is hopefully fairly self-explanatory. If not, don’t worry. You’ll get the hang of it 🙂 Hopefully I’ll also get the hang of actually posting them by Wednesday… 🙄
This week’s Word Nerd post is weather inspired. You see, while I have been sitting here roasting in the Australian summer heat, many of my northern hemisphere friends have been posting their winter wonderland pictures. One comment led to another (as it often does on Facebook), and had me asking one friend, “What do you call them?” Meaning:
I call them ‘gumboots’, but I know there are a lot of other names for them. Wellingtons. Wellies. Galoshes. (I love that last one. So onomatopoeic!) So what I want to know is, what do YOU call them? And tell me where you’re from, so we can get an idea of regional variation. *That’s your cue to post in the comments below* 😉
But wait! Because I don’t just want to know what you call them. I want to know your style. Do you go for classic black, like above, or do you like to add colour and personality to your gumboots? Or whatever you call them…
Do you go for bright, solid colours?
Or rainbow stripes?
Maybe something patterned?
Are you all class?
Do you like to make a fashion statement?
Or do you seek to satisfy your arty soul?
What’s your style when it comes to gumboots? And what do you call them? Do let me know!
