Five Ways To Say It Video Monday: That’s just gross.

5 ways 3

Welcome to Video Monday!

Out loud; in your head; under your breath!

Practice makes progress!

That’s just gross.

That’s just gross.

That’s just gross.

Hi! Welcome to English with Katie I’m Katie, Katie Adler and it’s Video Monday time to begin our week and it is Halloween week. Happy Halloween week! This week we’re working with “That’s just gross.” Now, around Halloween in the Unites States, which is where I am, from you will find many gross things that have to do with Halloween costumes or Halloween decorations.

Now, another way you can use it is, tonight I watched the first disc of season 1 of a show called “Breaking Bad”. A friend of mine lent me the DVD series. He and his wife just love the show. (You know who you are.) And, there were many times during the show I said, “That’s just gross.” This is a very handy phrase to use. “That’s just gross.”. Happy Halloween, take care and have a good one! (Fart sound) “That’s just gross.”

That’s just gross.

That’s just gross.

That’s just gross.

Have a good one!

 

Sincerely,

Katie

Here is the post about my mother’s father:
http://englishwithkatie.com/five-ways-to-say-it-tuesday-in-loving-memory-of-my-grandfather/

My father was sixteen when his father died in a work related accident. It was a huge shock. I love to hear the stories that my dad tells about his father. They had a lot of happy times together. My father learned that every day is important and to live well.

Koo was given to me by way of my piano teacher. After the Kobe earthquake I found myself in Suma. My piano teacher’s friend’s son was moving. He needed a home for Koodie. I said YES! She died in July. She was just learning to like cats! I am so happy she came to live with me.
