I mean, don't get me wrong, going on eight months here I certainly have improved on my cultural prowess. I know how many "grams" to ask for when I order meat. I know what a "snag fest" is, and a "hen's party". And I know that when I go to the store they are always going to say, "how ya goin'" and that it just simply means, "hello"... but here's a funny surprise I thought I would share, a recent one that I have discovered. A couple weeks ago I went to the video store trying to find a fun romantic comedy to watch with Mick, especially one that he hadn't ever seen before (which leaves quite a bit) and I had set my sights on the hillariously adorable and sweet "Fever Pitch" starring Drew Barrymore and Jimmy Falon. But did I find "Fever Pitch"? No, no I didn't, I found "The Perfect Catch"... yep that's right, no one here has ever heard of "Fever Pitch"... what's that?
|Yes, that's right...|
Ah... you gotta love it. And I really do. I have always wanted to live in a foriegn country and experience life with a twist to the "normal"... everything from the sound of my sweet husband's accent when he tells me he loves me, or reminds one of our daughters to "grab her jumper" to the new titles given to old movies I love. I am grateful for this, and I count these wonderful differences as the spices of my life. It never gets boring.
