Still waiting for someone to get my catch my little joke here... or maybe it's not here... maybe it's there... or neither...

Ahhhh... Neither Here Nor There is a title of a BB book, isn't it? The one comparing English words to American ones?

That's it, Leyla, "Neithere Here Nor There: Travels in Europe" was one of Bill Bryson's books (not the one about English though).

I'm not in the habit of hiding little jokes or puns in my messages. That one just came naturally but I was aware of it when I posted and wondered if anyone would pick it up.

Spontaneous jokes and puns are always the best, Ang.
