Are you Naked….whoops…I mean Knackered?

If you are ever walking down the street in England and you hear someone say they are might wonder what they are talking about. I remember when I was at the Sikh Camp…and was behind one person who said to a friend how “Knackered” they were….I was thinking….”Whoa!” what are they talking about. I asked them…and they said…not “Naked” but “Knackered”…..which I guess means “very tired” or “exhausted”. If you are not listening carefully you can mistake the two words. Anyways….since then I noticed everyone using that word and thought it was pretty amusing. There are all kinds of interesting English words and slang that I learnt while I was there in England.
