    Calling an Aussie a Kiwi or vice versa is a bit like calling a Canuck an American. Doesn't go down well

    Unless you are Russell Crowe or a Finn brother.
    When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.

    I didn't mean for anyone to think I would confuse the two countries, I only meant that my husband lived in that region for a while and how much I like the accents from that part of the world. My apologies for making it seem like I didn't know the difference between the two. I have had it drilled into my head since we married, that there is a difference.

    Maybe I should try again?

    My husband was born in Toronto (Canadian born) whose parents went to live in NZ when he was 7 (giving him NZ citizenship).

    As for the rest of what I was thinking ... maybe we can put that down to brain freeze moment? cause I'm not sure I know how to put that thought into better perspective. My apologies to all the Canucks, Kiwis and NZ that I may have offended. I truly didn't mean to do so.

    And my apologies to you professordeb for being a nitpicky twit
    Of course if you're married to a kiwi (even a canuck kiwi) you would know the difference between the two.

    Nitpik away. If it bothers me too much, I can always start a "dialogue" using PM

    I doubt you'd ever intentionally offend me. No worries, it's all good.
