    Finally a slang I already know! I’ve learnt it by listening to a podcast and I never forgot about. Do you know why? Simply because I instantly loved the word “munchies”. It sounds nice to my ears. Some words, I really don’t like, I even avoid using them. I know, it’s wrong but that’s how I am…
    Does your husband have munchies as well?
    Thank you Yvonne

    My husband and I both get the munchies at night!! We put the kids to bed, then we pig out on munchies and watch movies together. I tend to avoid some words in French. I really understand what you mean with that. 🙂

  3. Great post! I have the munchies for some Emmental chips!
