In much the same way, Volvo is now a common noun in these parts. (Though I'm puzzled: why not Tata?)
And I took a Volvo from Pune to Bombay last week. Very comfortable and relaxed trip, if you exclude the guy seated behind me who sustained a cellphone argument with a girlfriend all through the journey. Going by the racket coming from near the front of the bus, I suspect his girlfriend was sitting there. Unless that was the audio from Hera Pheri starring Suneil ("Maybe I meant Suniel") Shetty and Akshay Kumar, shown for the entertainment of us bleary-eyed passengers.
And printed at the bottom of my ticket was this line: Courtesy Safety and Reability.
Re-ability? Readability? Redo-ability? Reality? Really-billy? What?
Britannia cheese spreads that we've been gorging on of late, very tasty and all. Sour Cream & Onion, Minty Coriander flavours, maybe more, but these two for sure. So minty fresh that I've been thinking of calling all my friends to recommend them.
Then I read on the side of the rectangular container this little notice:
- CONTAINS ADDED NATURE-IDENTICAL FLAVOUR
Come to think of it, I think I will call all my friends after all. They deserve a taste of these all-natural-identical flavours.
And that's the truth-identical.
