Explanation Of Lingo

So it seems Americans don’t use the phrase “shouted me lunch”! It just means that they paid for my lunch. πŸ™‚ If you shout someone, you’re treating them to something.

    I wish someone would “shout me” some lunch!!!! We are really having fun learning about Australia in our homeschool. I had NO idea that it was so dry there. Our book says that most people live in the southeast. I thought about you right away. Very interesting! Have you ever been to the USA? I guess it would be an expensive trip. 😦Laura πŸ™‚

    I guessed that this strange way of talking must mean “invited ” for lunch!The country is so wide… you must shout to invite someone???
