Whenever my co-choir members feel like they need to agree on any opinion shared by other members, they would say, “Czech!!! …Koslovakia!” while acting a check sign in the air.
Being the geography geek that I am, I am aware of the fact that this country has long split back in 1993 (Slovakia and the Czech Republic).
It became my pet peeve.
Whenever they say ‘Czechoslovakia’, I would comment, “But they are two countries already!”
When it was my turn to agree on a certain opinion, I answered, “Czech! … Republic!”
“Ayaw magpatalo!” Mabel heard me, “Kailangan talaga Czech Republic na s’ya!”
