Today's word used in a sentence would be:
"I like to colour co-ordinate my knickers and bra's"
'Knickers' = ladies underwear
This one seems to be very confusing, as all the Americans I have ever used this word with assumed I mean't knickerbockers...LOL! As in those long strange old-fashioned trousers and do not have a clue this is our everyday word for ladies underwear. This has resulted in some very strange conversations!
