The extra words:

And the questions are:
What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?
What is the bug that when you touch it, curls into a ball?
What is the bubbly, carbonated drink called?
What do you call gym shoes?
What do you say to address a group of people?
What do you call the kind of spider that has an oval shaped body and extremely long legs?
What do you call your grandparents?
What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?
What do you call it when rain falls while the sun is shining?
What is the thing you change the TV channel with?

The extra question:

  1. I think you have a great accent and a lovely speaking voice! It is a bit nerve-racking facing the camera, isn't it? I'm not used to speaking to myself at all, thus the long awkward pauses during mine... I think you did a great job. And I've never ever heard of a gullyflusher (?) I think that is what you said? So interesting!
