Children as red indians canoeing a cardboard box across the rug with a vision of the route round the estuary in their heads.
The Scottish Word:

Firth.

“This is rare! Cmon let’s awa outside an put the box into the firth an dae it for real.”

Translated:

firth: estuary, wide inlet of the sea.

“This is great fun! Come on let us away outside and put the box into the estuary and do it for real.”

[firth spelled out in the phonetic alphabet.]

Illustration Friday. Pretend.
