What a useful word 'reckon'. I hear it all the time in Australia, New Zealand, and the UK. It fits in such a useful way so many times. I reckon we might have a drink or two this evening. What do you reckon we have for dinner? I reckon he never saw that magpie flying at his head. That's some nice trousers I reckon. Just start to speak and think of the word and there are so many places for it.
So why don't we use it in Canada? I guess we know it. We maybe use it sparingly I'd say, but also not in the same context. We would be more likely to use it as like a 'day of reckoning' type of way. I'm not sure why we don't use it more. I kind of love it. Somehow our language changed in subtle ways in our different countries and then here we are.
Maybe we should just all do it. Reckon it. It seems so normal and useful here in Australia. I wonder if I would feel like an idiot if I tried to use it in Canada. I'm not sure.
We had an amazing day catching up with more family yesterday, playing music and sharing stories. Consumed a bit more alcohol as well I'm afraid. But memories like that being made are the stuff that means something I reckon. See what I did there? I love the people we have been spending time with, swimming, singing, laughing. And I love the language. Our differences make us interesting and uniquely us. And fun right? Do you reckon?
