A loo? What's that, a bog?

A few days ago I wrote about the confusion us Brits can have, and cause, when speaking English in America. A friend sent me a link to an opinion piece in the New York Times that was published yesterday. I enjoyed it and hope you do too!

Heh.. one time, years ago, I was in Harrods of all places, with my young cousins, and they saw a bag of cranberries in a cooler, and they asked me where they come from.

I said that they grow in "bogs", and they thought it was the funniest thing they'd ever heard.
