#Scotstober Day 7 #Skoosh

Today’s word is skoosh, and it’s a braw one. So braw, that it’s featured on the site before.

Skoosh was part of our (mine and Jez’s) Things in Scots series. And just to jog your memories, here’s a wee recap of what it means: to spray, to gush. It’s also a word for fizzy juice like the awesomeness that is Irn Bru. And, it even means something is easy to do.

In honour of today’s word, and as a welcome wee break for me, I thought I’d make this post a skoosh for me. Here’s a picture post of my favourite skoosh.

Royal Navy veteran from Scotland. My journey into writing started with a screenwriting certificate program at UCLA Ext. Since then, I've worked as a freelance content writer, erotica author, proofreader, professional beta reader, and content editor. I'm now working hard on my dream writing career: romantic suspense author. When I'm not writing, I can be found drinking too much coffee, obsessing over yarn, and planning world domination with my husband, jezbraithwaite.blog, and our squirrel army.​

      As for spellcheck…It’s just a sea of red, squiggly lines. It’s like a murder scene on my screen. 🔪 Grammarly doesn’t know what to do with me. 🤣

    1. Thank you, Aletta! I’m so glad you were able to read it. I may be totally wrong here, but I think I recall seeing that you’ve written in Dutch in your comments section on your site. Scots and Dutch share some common root words. There’s stories about Scots and Dutch soldiers in WWII who were able to understand each other without too much trouble. If I’m wrong about there being Dutch on your site, then you’re even more impressive. 😃

      1. That is very interesting Susan! I am Afrikaans. Afrikaans is a creole language that evolved during the 19th century under colonialism in southern Africa. This simplified, creolised language had its roots mainly in Dutch, mixed with seafarer variants of Malay, Portuguese, Indonesian and the indigenous Khoekhoe and San languages. We had Dutch at school too. Perhaps that is why I could read most of it.
