Kiwi Vocabulary

After living with two different Kiwi girls for the last 3 years, I've had a number of additions to my vocabulary.  Words that will no longer be particularly useful now that L. is leaving the country.

Before I reveal the meanings or usages, I'm curious to see how many of the following words you can guess.  They're some of the major ones that I got used to mentally translating over the course of the last three years:
  • Flash
  • Togs
  • Jandals
  • Plasters
  • Busting
  • Boot
  • Mince
  • Capsicum
Leave me a comment with your guesses, and I'll be back tomorrow with the meanings!
