Waaaaiiiit a minute...

So you're saying British people go to Rome on their class trips and dress like this.

And Americans go to the living room on their class trips and dress like this.
One of us is getting gypped.

[thanks to Louise Shefford's gorgeous mom for the reminder of why I am genetically hard-wired to be attracted to British accents and bad teeth]

I love your blog, so don't take this the wrong way, but saying gypped is really gross. it's like saying someone "jewed" you. it refers to "gypsies" who are actually called Rom and basically is a really bigoted thing to say. i don't know if you just didn't realize this? anyway, i truly enjoy your blog.

bellisimama im sorry if it offended you. the use of the word is legit by way of websters english dictionary

while jewed would be a slang derivation of the definition of jew. so there's a difference.

that being said--words that are now in are dictionary have racist origins--for sure. you have a point. but it's one best taken up with the lord and lady merriam- webster.
that being said, i'll think twice the next time i use it.
