Thank you @differentauthorexpertbat for sending me 2 questions. Please feel free to send as many as you wish ^^. I will try to answer as many as I can!

Nappy is supposed to be the British word for diaper. I’m not British, though I sometimes call them as such because I think that it is cute! There was a brief time in my teenage years when I wanted to learn more British phrases. Typically I do tend to write British-style English, though I realize nowadays that I should be more neutral in this, although it is not entirely possible to be neutral.

In etymology, I think that ‘nappy’ (a person who takes many naps) is also closer in meaning to the Dutch ‘luier’ (lazy person) than ‘diaper’ is (I don’t even know what this word is supposed to mean, originally).

Someone recently told me that a group of sharks is called a ‘shiver’ 😂 . I did not know about this, so until the next shark fact, this will be my favorite one. Does my shark make you shiver? He just wants to put me in diapers and sleep with me ^^

Thank you for wishing me a merry Christmas. I love you 💖💖💖. Make the best of it and don’t overeat !!

Also check out my website, which is like a shadow-copy of my tumblr blog ^^: https://coucherequin.com/

My understanding is that nappy is shorthand for napkin: an absorbent cloth. Although I might be misremembering. Hope the holidays and new year went well for you.

That’d be a lot more logical than what I put forward xD
