Jack told to Ginger:


I'm Jack. What's your name? How would you like to ride home on a real cowboy? I got a six pack of cold ones on ice and my roomie's out all night. So you can scream my name as loud as you need to, sugar.

In the US, beer comes in packages of six. We call them six-packs.

We have a lot of slang terms for beer. Here are a few:

- cold one
- bad boy
- cool and frosty
- nasty
- forty (a forty-ounce bottle)
- pounder (a 24-ounce can)
- tallboy (a 24-ounce can)
- longneck (a bottle shape)
- pint (sixteen ounces in a glass)
- draft (a glass or cup tapped from a keg)

Jack has bad grammar. Can you spot his mistakes?

Kingston, the difference between tell and say is similar to the difference between ask and demand. Please look up both pairs of verbs and study their use.
