I'll guess at in pain/hurting. I know someone who had that recently, mild flu symptoms followed. It's rare though. I'm sure you'll be fine.


I've been getting it for the last few years and this is the first time it's been sore.

I've never had the flu and from i've been told, it's a terrible thing.
Never had the flu, wow, at least you can't get the horrific man flu. :laughing:

I would ask how you qualify to have it, but if you don't want to say on here, no problem.

I've picked up a lot of Scottish words on here down the years, naturally. 'Telt' is one of my faves. :laughing:
I also like 'This is beyond our ken'


The only one I dislike is 'boak' which sounds unpleasant, and the meaning is unpleasant too.
And guess what .... 'boak' was the word a guest posted at me recently whilst I was goofing around with another poster, (I don't think the guest liked our banter but in ourdefence, the banter wasn't for guesty's consumption. :gigglesnshit: )

Anyway, looking forward to seeing some new words. :Wiiiine!:


Haud yer wheesht! :woteva:

Well of course you would know what it means, I was wondering if any non Scots could guess it. Here's another one I heard "Yer granny could cough a cud" That's the English spelling of it lol, maybe you could write it in Scottish and tell us what it means :mrgreen: And smoke like a lum is another one I don't think a non Scot would get


My Da smokes like like a lum.

So the only Scots word you dislike is the word "Boak" Thanks for letting us know that. And the only reason you dislike the word "Boak" is because a poster said you make them "Boak". Fair enough
