Brit Word of the Day!
Today's BWOTD is a very common phrase and bemuses Americans!"I'm just going to spend a penny"'Spend a penny' = have a pee!My mum once caused much confusion with some very good friends of ours here, when she told them she got up around 2am to spend a penny. They told us they had a whole conversation afterwards about what she could possibly 'spend a penny' on at 2am in the morning where we live! They finally plucked up the courage to ask me as it was intriguing them so much LOL!This originates from when you had to pay a penny to use a public toilet in the UK as pictured above, which I remember, so it must have gone on well into the 1970's.
