"...Baby One More Time" - Britney Spears, 1998

The scene: Cornmarket Street, Oxford (then and now)

The time: Around 12:30pm today

The players: An exasperated teenaged mother, with a big toddler on one of those kid-leashes (argh). She (the toddler) is pulling and pulling on her constraint, wanting to get away and explore the world.

What I observed: Young mother swats the little girl while shrieking the little one's name. Shrieking at the top of her lungs, I might add.

Mum was yelling "BRITNEY!!!!!!!!"

I just couldn't help but wonder if she'll ever regret the name she chose for her daughter only a few years ago...

That'll be a "nappy" in the UK.

Janet and I were talking about differences in names of items of clothing between the UK and US only this morning.
