My First Friday Five - How Fun!

RevGalBlogPals sponsors this fun meme:

Brilliantly British Friday Five
In the spirit of My Word! and Says You!, Songbird and Kathryn offer up a Brilliantly British Friday Five.Below you will find five phrases seen or heard by Songbird on her British holiday. Use your imagination to define them. Points will be granted for humor. If you are one of our British RevGals, don't play, but please e-mail either Songbird or Kathryn to let us know of any definitions you find particularly amusing or inventive. There will be lovely prizes provided by Kathryn (Diocesan magazine, St. M's notelets, history of St. M's, parish magazine--come on Barbara Pym fans, I know you want that last one!!!), so do your best!

Adverse Camber - chapped and swollen lips on teenager with braces who spent too much time kissing by the garden gate, failing to remember that love may be blind, but the neighbors ain't.

Butts Wynd - What G&T does in the wee hours of the morning after eating high-fiber cereal at bedtime

Plague Church - any church with an infectious disease such as malcontent measles, complacency cold, back-stabbing bacterial infection, or vicious virus

Free House - that wonderful sensation that Mom gets when her loveable young ones are all safely delivered on the first day of school . This often involves twirling oneself around the living room chanting, "Free, free, free!" Of course said mom then prepares for her own day at work, school...

Mind the Gap -what anyone wearing a hospital gown must do. (Thanks G&T)
