Abroad in Scotland.

Adverb: abroad
To or in a foreign country
"they had never travelled abroad"

This afternoon my friend, Jo, told me that she had forgotten to pay her Sky Digital bill and that it was going to be cut off. Sarah, another friend said "well why don't you tell them that you've been abroad for a month so you couldn't pay it?"

Jo replied, like she had thought of something of pure brilliance, "Oh yeah, I can tell them that I was in Scotland!"

What was that, Jo? You could tell them that you've been abroad in Scotland for a month? This is England, honey, unless there's a Scotland in Spain then I'm certain your Sky Digital is going to be cut off!
