For the "hi, I’m not from the US” ask set, how about 7, 16 and 19 ? ;)
7 three words from your native language that you like the most
Ooh, okay, technically my native language is English, but where I grew up they speak a dialect called doric which has some fantastic words. However, they rarely have ‘proper’ spellings, so they end up being written phonetically. Driech is always good, it’s when the weather is really grey and miserable and it really sums it up well. Um, fooshtie is a good one too. It means when something has gone off or stale, or you know that smell in the attic or a charity shop? That’s fooshtie. For the third one I’m going to cheat a little, cause technically it’s two words, but I’m going to go for hairy fit. Having a hairy fit means going mad about something. You know, that feeling when your favourite character does something stupid and you’re like, what the hell are you doing, moron?! That’s a hairy fit.
16 which stereotype about your country that you hate the most and which one you kind of agree with
Oh man. Scottish stereotypes? Sooooo many! And to be honest, most of them are pretty true. We don’t all have red hair, that’s about it for being false and I don’t hate it (I would love red hair). As for agreeing with them, I agree with most of them tbh. The one about most Scots hating the English is, unfortunately, true in many ways. Which I dislike. Like, I was at a Miranda Lambert concert in Glasgow and one of the band members was English, and the audience booed him. Properly booing, not as a joke. It was uncomfortable.
19 do you like your country’s flag and/or emblem? what about the national anthem?
Ooh, boy. There’s a can of worms! I personally am totally neutral about the flags. Whether you’re going to the Union Jack, or the saltire, or the lion rampart (we have a lot of flags), I don’t really care either way. Ah, the national anthem… So, technically as part of the UK we’re covered by God Save the Queen, which is a total durge. But whenever you’re talking about Scotland on it’s own, they use Flower of Scotland. Which is… meh. It’s so funny whenever you’re at the rugby though, because most of it is mumbled until you get to the bit about beating the English then everyone knows the words to that bit!
Thank you for the ask!
