Today’s word is ‘firie.’
From Australia of course — and it’s the informal word for a firefighter.
Like many other Aussie words, it’s formed by shortening the original and adding an ‘ee’.
Think of ‘Vinnies’ for the St Vincent de Paul’s charity shops in Sydney, for instance.
And as for the ‘firies’, well they are without a doubt the best of the best. Our thoughts are with them all.
