So, I just used that I was pretty sure was an actual word until the person I sent it to asked me what it meant…I of course had to google it because I was pretty sure I didn’t make up the word and hate being wrong.
Anyhoo turns out it is a word (slang, but whatever) that is used everywhere in the world except North America….
How can a word be known everywhere on the entire planet except one (rather large) continent?
I’d love to end this post by teaching my North American friends an incredibly useful word but sadly the word was ‘yonks‘ meaning ‘ages’, derived from donkey years (somehow) i.e. I haven’t eaten peanut butter and fluff in yonks. Marginally useless and kinda of stupid sounding – maybe it’s better off that North America remains in the dark on this one.
