The Olympics are starting in a few hours. We shall all strap on our patriotic selves. I love the Olympics. I am one of those wussy types who get all teary at the podium moments.
I have one small bother though.
If you are from America and you do something good, people can say that is the American way.
If you come from France they will say “oh that is the french way of doing things”
If you are from Britain…well then you can choose. It can be the British way, the English, the Scots way, the Welsh way or the Irish way.
If you come from the Netherlands, you can take pride in your Dutch way of doing things.
There is is Indian, Icelandic, Finnish etc
New Zealand has no way! You can’t take the New Zealanderish way or the New Zealandarian way or even the New Zealandch way.
Are we the only country without a way? I could take the Australian way, the South Afrifican way, the Swiss way, the Bangladeshi way, the Tongan way etc etc
But we have no way. Is New Zealand alone?
The New Zealand way just sounds dumb. Surely someone else out there who sounds dumb too.
