Boi Philup, was over from the US. An esteemed professor, expert in his field at one of the good US universities, he’s also a laugh and has a love of, and critical ear for, Norfolk-speak. Our greeting after many years went something like this:
“What ya say then boi?”
“Nuthun much. What ya say then?”
I wanted to show him the ‘SLOW YOU DOWN’ sign I’d snapped in Wiveton. He would love it. Imagine my surprise when he said he’d had the same picture pinned above his desk in Pennsylvania for over 12 years.
Great moinds think aloik!
