I was talking to a man at work today who has lived in three different countries. One thing he said has stuck with me and made me ponder. He said that Americans were much friendlier than Canadians. Now I used to think that strangers talk to me, but I now realise that I talk to strangers all. the. time. Allthetime.
Does that make me a little more American.
Second thing, the man has been here for a few short days, and I was talking to him on the phone at lunchtime and he was totally brushing me off. "Yeah, yeah, OK, like bye"...I called him on it, asking if he had an important meeting or something. Turns out he was making popcorn.
Oh, OK honey. Better focus on that popcorn. *wink*(He's a man, the man is. A man who lived alone for two months. Cooking popcorn and talking at the same time....naaauuuaaaa.)
By the same token, he is at the perfect stage of jet lag, he woke up 45 minutes before me; by the time I got upstairs, the kids' lunches were made, and so was my tea. Piping hot.
Now how good is that? Need to focus on the popcorn honey? No problem AT all.
