TGIF. Toes Go In First. That is what I have always thought it was. Imagine then, my surprise when I saw all the young people constantly posting that on Facebook and Twitter all the time, especially just before the weekend. "Young people are strange!" I thought. But then curiosity got the better of me and I googled it. That is when I was glad, that I had never said or written TGIF in public, because Toes Go In First was definitely not what it was.
Thank God It’s Friday. TGIF. How could I have not known that? Firstly, in my defence I have always worked from home, from under a rock and many a times I am quite clueless to what is going on in the much more happening and trendier world outside of my rock. And secondly, I have never had a living person I knew either say that to my face or text me – TGIF. Now where in the world did I get the impression that it was Toes Go In First, you ask? Well, I’d rather not say.
So it was Friday yesterday and I give my thanks duly. I also bring you the long overdue second volume of Cook Republic Files, a list of some of my current favourites and obsessions.
