Scottish word of the week - week 3


I missed a week, sorry. Anyway this week is the word "beamer" which means to have a red face from embarassment/blushing.

"I had a pure beamer when the teacher said my name out loud"

It can also be used to just describe an embarassing situation.
"Walking around with Stinky John is a total beamer".

Or in some areas of North Lanarkshire "Beamer" is replaced by "Reddie"

e.g. Och man I got a pure reddie there!
