We Brits are famous for understatement.
We’ve got a bit of a problem.
This really means:
Our office has burnt down in a massive arson attack.
This Wednesday I met Sarah at weekly house group. She’s a university researcher, originally from the USA. Her last “posting” before DUS was Reyjkavik, capital of Iceland, where she had worked for three years.
G in G:
So, do you speak any Icelandic?
A bit, but I find I now keep using Icelandic words when speaking in German.
Now, that is classic British understatement, and from an American!
Sarah is the first person I have ever met who speaks any Icelandic at all! All power to you, lass!
Have an understated day, won’t you!
