1. Rattle ya dags! | Hurry up!
This one’s a bit gross. The dags are the parts of fleece around a sheep’s bum that are usually caked in poo. Basically, they rattle when the sheep runs.
2. Just popping to the dairy | I’m going to the convenience store.
Kiwis get a lot of grief about this phrase — or any unwarranted use of the word “dairy” for that matter — from our Aussie neighbors. To us, a dairy is a corner store, or wherever you can pick up a loaf of bread, bottle of milk, ice cream cone, or drink.
