Hikah the Helper

Apparently I have a mental block when it comes to Aussie accents.  Last night, I was hanging out with an Aussie friend who was telling me a story.  It went a little something like this:

Friend: "So I was waiting there for Hikah to pick me up..."

Me: "Is Hikah your helper?"

Friend (very confused): "Um no, I said, 'hired car'."

It goes both ways though because as I was telling a story about a friend named Craig, she stopped me and asked, "How do you spell his name?"  I spelled it and she said, "oh, we say it 'cray-g', not 'kregg.'"

Aubergine, eggplant folks...
