An over heard conversation... (Bad taste warning)

I heard the following conversation (more or less) between a group of women who were walking their children to school this morning.

Sharon asked me to go up her house for dinner tonight but I don't want to go.

Why not?

Have you been up her house?  She never cleans it!  It is disgusting.

You think hers is bad you should see mine.

No, yours is OK, I've seen a lot worse.

Like Peter's.  I don't know how he gets his in such a mess!

I don't know how I kept a straight face.


Well, much as I hate to pick holes in people's speech, these women were badly mispronouncing "house" - making it sound much more like "arse".

You've been watching too many Father Ted re-runs (giggle)!

Shrinky - I have too!

This definitely must be re-read after the "arse" explanation. Funny though... here we would never say, "...go up her house..." We'd just more likely say, "... come over..."

That does sound funnier with arse.
