Budding Anglophile

(Rebecca might appreciate this.)

Jeff's been spending a fair amount of time in London lately. His job calls for a lot of European travel, and London seems to be the hot spot. I think it's starting to affect him.

Peering into the refrigerator this morning, he asked, "What's in the take-away container?"*

Hmmph. Here in the United States, sir (summoning my inner Stephen Colbert), we call it a take-OUT container.

*Leftover pasta from a restaurant dinner one week ago, if you must know. Because, umm, I want to teach the kids about microbes. Yeah, that's it! (Doesn't that sound more responsible than "because I keep forgetting it's there"?)
