Will the Greeks leave the euro? I think this is the question on everyone’s lips at the moment. Well, only if they are reading this post right now and need to trail a finger along the screen, mouthing the words to themselves as they go. In which case, that question is definitely on everyone’s lips. Although not so much by this point in the paragraph, now this sentence is on everyone’s lips.
I had a Greek flatmate in the first year of university, lovely girl, and she said that in Greece they had to call the single currency the evro, because euro sounds a lot like a naughty word for breasts. She may have been having a little fun at my expense, but she didn’t seem like the sort. This one time, she shared her bergamots in syrup that her grandma had posted over to Wales for her.
Experts say that if Greece leaves the booby (that is, euro) it will plunge the UK into a devastating economic tailspin that will leave us dizzied and plunging towards the ground. Not that we are currently in such a wonderful position, but obviously economic experts really know what they are talking about, and I for one am desperately worried (I am not desperately worried). Actually, what does worry me is whether access to hummus will be cut off if the Greeks exit the single currency stage right. Now that would be terrible.
