Death Down Under
By Ibrahim Oyebanji
"Drop Dead!" (MacGregor 1). The word a "Drop dead" together means to die all of a sudden. In the book a character said that when he/she was angry. That shows what people in Australia say when they are feeling mad or angry.
"'I'm not climbing anywhere except for out of this stupid boat'" (MacGregor 8). His behavior was only like that cause he was tired and he was talking to his friend.
"They noticed the theif stealing their stuff" (MacGregor 68). Stealing is wrong in Australia and they are strong consequences for it.
"We call 'er The Coathanger mates" (MacGregor 8). The Coathabger was like a mountain or a really high land.
