What I enjoyed about my trip to the States:
1.) The varying climate. It rained. It was sunny. It was windy. And it rained again. And I loved it.
2.) I appreciate the willingness of American drivers to utilize their blinkers. I mean, they are there for a reason. Thank you.
3.) I also appreciate that one can buy timbits doughnuts at any time of the day or night. Here, here!
4.) I now utilize and appreciate the whole, “family bathroom/lounge” concept. Very handy in the airport. And at the mall.
What’s not working for the States:
1.) Portion control. It’s inconceivable that anyone requires a nearly 24 oz. SMALL drink at a fast-food joint. Really? Because I think that’s WAY too much pop. (Yes, I say “pop.” I’m from Ohio. I’m keepin’ it real.)
2.) Leggings as pants.
Heavy, heavy sigh.
Friends – leggings as PANTS on most of the American population are not ok. Please hear me: COVER UP YOUR BUTT. Longer shirt = ok. I literally saw a girl at the mall wearing leggings that had pockets “stitched” on her backside. The presence of pockets does not classify the lycra you’re wearing as “pants”.
