You may remember when I wore that skirt before I mentioned I wasn’t sure what to do with it. I then decided to shorten it but now I’ve changed my mind and am glad I never got round to it! I’m now loving the unusual length. Because it’s a challenege for me. And challenges are good! Plus, it shows off the shoes!
A complete non sequitur: I discovered recently that in the US, quite means ‘very’, so ‘quite good’ is better than ‘good’ and ‘quite a few’ means ‘many’! This has transatlantic misunderstanding written all over it. Because in the UK quite means ‘relatively’ or ‘somewhat’. So just to clarify when I say something is quite good, I mean better than alright, but not as good as ‘good’. And when I say I’ve been thinking about something quite a lot, that doesn’t mean it has occupied my every waking hour.
There are some senses in which quite means very in UK English too, but both are pretty outdated. One is ‘Are you quite sure?’ where it means ‘absolutely’ and the other is in a sense only used by super poshos or old ladies: ‘it was quite ghastly’ or ‘his performance was quite extraordinary’.
