As you seem to like them so much…

“They ain’t here!”

“Come on, son. Where’s your grammar?”

“My gramma ain’t here neither. She’s gone to church!”

    As you know my English gramma isn’t the best .. neither. *smile – In Sweden we have have a word, LAGOM – that no other country has … and it means, just right. When translating to English – they want to use Moderate, but that isn’t right.
