Here in Canada, we call refrigerators, the ‘fridge’, like in the UK. In some countries (the Philippines for example), they call it by a popular brand name, ‘Frigidaire’. Other examples of this are ‘Band-Aid’, ‘Xerox’, ‘Kleenex’. There are probably many many others. Think of more? Put it in the comments!
I am a Sansei, with two teens, and a hamster. This blog is a repository for ideas and observations, expressed in cartoon form, by and large. A bit of a journal too. Feel free to follow me on INSTAGRAM @ WILTOONS, (the Twitter for people who like to go out) where I post a journal comic. Thanks for dropping by!
