  • headline with that word eye watering please and we're here in the UK with the

  • Sun first the headline that's sure lot toddler playing with her dad's phone

  • watering near what kind of things make your eyes water

  • well painful things unpleasant things yes nasty experiences things that make

  • money that you spend on something and it's to say it's an outrageous shocking

  • amount of money that you really don't want to spend this headline though

  • Katherine is a perfect example of a double meaning upon a play on words as

  • we call it can you explain what it is well yes I can yes no new what happens

  • when you chop onions I cry my eyes water yeah it's a very common reaction to

  • onions it makes you cry so I watering the year means shocked at the amount of

  • money but they're using it in an onion story because it's a really cool

  • wordplay a very good example of headline word wordplay it's not just about money

  • though is it it's to do with large amounts yes

  • any amount which is more than normal more than expected and

  • is a bit shocking and painful in a way so you might say I had to work for an

  • eye-watering 24 hours without a break I did yeah I was trying to get that

  • English the cat's video done on time and I used it without a number there but it

  • was still quite shocking what an idea okay let's have a summary of that way

  • you can keep the bottles in separate compartments and it keeps them organized

  • and tidy so and you will add to that wine rack as you build up your wine

  • collection you will add more and more bottles and that's the idea of rack up

  • you accumulate you get more and more of something gradually awesome usually

  • gradually it can be quickly I mean but it's it's it's

  • incremental II piece by piece amount by amount so if you rack up a big

  • build in this case you spend some money you spend some more money you spend some

  • more money and suddenly you spend a lot of money you can rack up a big bill you

  • can rack up the surprising bill you can rack up a 20-pound bill in this case

  • there wasn't a lot on the it seems like it was one onion plus delivery so it
