It seems in the colonies, land of immigration, we like being clear at the expense of local colour. What Ray wrote sounds perfect here, too, whereas "draw blood" sounds like a bit of a precious litote, an indirect name for the test.
(I was shocked in London to see that the baggage storage service at the train station was called "Left Luggage"... you could only get away with such an unclear term if you felt you were the original English-speakers. North Americans would never call it that.)
Many thank you for your help.
Could you tell me how to express these situations?
Are the verb correct?
- I pulled out a decayed tooth yesterday.
- You have a white hair here, let me pull it off for you?
- The doctor drawed too many blood, I feel dizzy.
For the second one, say:
You have a white har. Let me pull it out for you.For the third one, say:
The doctor took too much blood. I feel dizzy.(I would hope that wouldn't happen.)
