Regular readers of The English Blog (hi Marcia) will know that I'm a big fan of cartoons as a means of presenting vocabulary and grammar, as well as cultural information. So I was very pleased to discover Itchy Feet, a weekly comic about travel, life in foreign countries, and learning new languages.
Itchy Feet was created in 2011 by Malachi Rempen, an American film-maker who now lives in Berlin. Below is a fairly typical example of his work, which could be described as quirky or offbeat. You can find a lot more comics in the same vein in the Itchy Feet archives or the Itchy Feet store.
Of course, the girl should have said 'washing machine' and 'toes'. Perhaps she's French because they do actually say 'fingers of the foot' (doigts du pied) in France. However, the French also use the word 'kleenex' for a tissue, so perhaps she's not.
If someone has itchy feet, they have a strong desire to travel or move from place to place. For example: I reckon Helen will start talking about moving to a new city soon. She's always had itchy feet, and she's lived here for three years already.
