“The Hot Tea” is a regular line specialized in unearthing the intricacies of London’s social, governmental and millennial problems when you look at the context of Pittsburgh’s very own culture that is complex.
LONDON- “Do you fancy a great chin wag plus some products later?” a random rosy-cheeked Briton asked me personally at Brewdog, a nearby hipster-esque IPA bar and brewery in Shepherd’s Bush.
“What in God’s title is a chin wag?” We was thinking. Attempting to mask my utter confusion at English slang — a yank that is typical — we feigned complete familiarity with your message and scoffed at their proposition.
“Thanks, but no thanks. I’m perhaps maybe not likely to chin wag some one i recently met.”
The man seemed like I had something on my face at me like I was some sort of nun, or maybe.
Ends up, “chin wag” does not mean making away. It simply means having a talk.
Due to the fact bad man left their chair and moved away from me personally, we noticed we required some severe assist in the assimilating-to-English-culture division.
