I'll have some H2O please!
It seems one of the words us Brits have the most difficulty with is 'water' in the USA! I have had to change the whole way I pronounce it, otherwise I just get blank stares or a repeated "sorry, what was that?".Well I was pleased to see it isn't just me on Saturday, when Ross asked for 'water' and got the exact same response. In fact he made three attempts to ask for it, before an American had to ask for him as it became farcical!!You see us Brits say "WARTER" and here you say "WATTER". I have learned to say it the American way, but every now and then I will forget and totally flummox a server!A friend suggested tonight that I ask for H2O, but I'm really not sure that wouldn't get even more blank looks! Oh the trials and tribulations of being a Brit abroad.
