"A piece at any door"

Of course "Piece" means sandwich in Scotland.

It's an expression used to describe someone who is so affable, that nobody would ever be able to refuse them something.

It's frequently used to describe my brother.

Not me though.

Gob = Spit

Gobbin = Spitting

Nipper = A cigarette that's been half smoked.

You smoke half of it and "Nip it" to smoke the rest of it later.

Hence a "Nipper"

I always loved the word stramash in football terms, 6 guys on each side 6 yards from goal, 6 trying to score by any means possible and 6 trying to stop the ball by blocks, tackles etc.

Players of Dundee FC must wonder how on earth the ball stayed out of the net during the Scottish Cup fifth round tie against Greenock Morton. :header:

Is 'jag' a Scottish word Vicky?...... we say 'jab'! :smilin:


It is Poca.

Partick Thistle are nicknamed the Jags, because Thistle's are Jaggy.

May I introduce the Torquinian word for bits of ash, dust and other stuff that you can see blowing around in the air? Smitch, as in 'It's a bit smitchy in there' when perhaps you have visited a derelict building. :smilin:

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.
