I love California (I was born in LA) but as a Brit there are a few things I refuse to say:
1) Happy Holidays. Look, it’s Christmas, alright?! I’m not on vacation in the Bahamas, it’s Christmas. Happy Christmas.
2) Soccer. Look, it’s football, alright?! My hispanic friends and I know what to call the greatest game in the world. Football.
3) Awesome. Look, it’s fabulous, amazing, brilliant, great, alright?! As I don’t have an American accent, it just doesn’t sound right and anyway, it feels a little bit hippy. Fabulous.
