Even after 4 months of being back in the USA, some things still jar my sensibilities a bit.
- It seems weird to not put USA at the bottom of addresses.
- The river ALWAYS seems like it's at high tide.
- The roads are still so very, very wide.
- The grocery stores are HU-GIGANTI-MUNGOUS! And the selection - oh my god!
- More people comment on Pumpkin's hair... but none on our accent. :)
And my most recent favorite, from the Farmers' Market this weekend, when I was so excited to see locally produced cheese!
- In Wisconsin, you can buy goat cheese curds.
Mr. Kluges adds:
- He no longer gets a tea and scone break at work.
- Everything is cheap, even gas.
- He has to drive everywhere.
- Where are the rooks?
- It's always hot and dry. (And we have central air.)
- The oatmeal and dairy products blow.
- He can go shopping AT ANY TIME.
- He can understand everybody (except the northern Wisconsonites.)
- The TV [We don't have cable] is crap. [I think that's because they only showed the good US and British shows in Ireland.-MHH]
- He can get BBC radio here.
- Oh, the beer! (But no cider or perry.)
