This blogpost has nearly no actual content. It has a bit, but it’s definitely content light.
My friend Jenny recently gave me several Scottish words, and I just had to employ them in any way possible. I had an elaborate plan to create an epic story using my new words, but then I realised I could fit them all into the title. Problem solved, right?
Well, only if you know what the words mean. Then it’s great. Just great.
To be ‘couthie‘ is to be amiable or sociable. The photo up above is one of me being especially couthie before a football match between Aberdeen Football Club and the local Munich team whose name I won’t even bother mentioning. Before the match, we all met at my Aberdonian friend Iain’s for an Irn-Bru.
(correction: Iain has told me that he’s Glaswegian. It’s his dad who’s an Aberdonian. All I know is that we went to see Aberdeen Football Club)
To ‘shoogle‘ is to shake or sway and to be ‘drookit‘ is to be drenched, so if you shake up that can of Irn-Bru and open it, you’re going to get very wet.
And ‘glaekit‘ means stupid or idiotic. If you insist on doing all that while knowing that it’s a carbonated beverage, then glaekit really is the perfect word to describe you.
