"CASH UP"


CASH UP (?) Apparently is one of the slang terms of the ever evolving Oz lingo...
for rich...or comfortable financially??...
they were both a little enebriated (a case (?) and some bud) when they were trying to explain the term to me ...my neighbors downstairs at Parthenon Place...(the place that would never have happened had I not broken into the old fibro two story boarding house...)
they know i don't work and only jet set back and forth between oz and the boring states of america...
so I sit down with my neighbors/mates late at night after my family has been long asleep and my thoughts are not interupted with pleas for something to do or cash...
"so what are u cashed up, Mate?"
"what??" I then in the herbal daze have to ask what they mean in American...
my neighbor replies in the very thick Queensland accent...
I ask him to respond slowly and so he speaks the almost perfect version of a yank accent that would do well even in Hollywood.
yep.... I understand... they think I'm rich....
it's real trip coming over to the opposite side of this planet where everything is the opposite..
toilets flush the opposite, cyclones go the opposite of hurricanes, the liberal party here is conversative, you drive on the left instead of the right...
does that mean bad can be good...
boring Sundays can become exciting here!!
