I hear UK tv shows refer to jumpers, but was unsure what was meant by that.

In the UK, jumpers are what we call pullover sweaters here in the US.

I don't care what men like or don't like (with the exception of my husband because I enjoy being attractive to him - the benefits are terrific!).

News to me, I remember when they were called overalls.

Ugg's = furry or suede galoshes. What I don't get is wearing them with shorts when its hot outside
(pu) but wearing flip flops when it's cold?
