This week we’re doing some last-minute shopping and trying not to act like a couple of bulls in a china shop. We’ll be discussing the various theories behind the origin of Black Friday, why a shop is called a shop, why a high street is high, and differentiating between haggling and bartering. 

We will also be learning about the connection between counters and computers and the difference between a BOGOF and a BOBFOC. As always we’ll be answering some of your excellent emails and having some fun with puns in a new word game. A Somethin’ Else production.

Susie’s trio:

Abligurition - excessive spending on food and drink

Angel Visit - a catch up with a friend that happens all too rarely

Twankle - to twang with the fingers on a musical instrument
