Firstly, thank you all for such an overwhelming and positive response. Here’s the second episode of my speaking and communication focused podcast: CommDao Speak Easy.
I’ve taken all the feedback to heart, and now the new format of each episode will include:
Remember you can download the audio AND adjust the speed.
Here are the show notes:
Keith: Aw man, this place is a bust.
Dave: Should’ve known better than to listen to Bobby… you want to head out already?
Keith: I dunno. Whatcha thinkin? Whadaya wanna do?
Dave: Well, I’m gonna have one more, and then we can bounce.
Keith: Aite, I’m gonna take a piss. Grab me another beer too, will ya?
Dave: Hey… uh, ‘scuse me! What else you got on tap?
Barkeep: Well, the usual, of course: Sam Adams Lager, Bud Light, Miller Lite, Coors Light, and Pabst Blue Ribbon.
to be a disappointment, to be a failure
Example: I thought I could make money from gambling, but that was a bust. = Making money from gambling was a failure.
Example: We need to head out soon if we want to catch the movie on time. = We need to leave soon in order to watch the movie.
to leave (even more informal)
Example: We need to bounce soon if we want to catch the movie on time. = We need to leave soon in order to watch the movie.
to urinate, to pee, to use the restroom/bathroom (very rough, vulgar)
Example: I always have to take a piss before I watch a movie. = I need to pee before watching a movie, every single time.
Example: People buy beer in bottles or cans, but if you get it on tap, the taste is always better. = Beer comes in many forms, but draft beer is the best.
Asking for recommendations or what selection is available is okay– as long as the place isn’t busy. Don’t be surprised if the server/bartender responds rudely to your question during peak hours. Remember: it’s not a problem with your pronunciation, but the timing of your question.
