my life revolves around food, shoes, homework and drawing the thick line between American-isms and Rest of the World-isms. i shall enjoy this while it lasts. think: joining the unemployed ranks of the disgruntled hoi polloi in a few months.
re: American-isms – “who says that?” has become a VFAQ (Very Frequently Asked Question) in my life.
me: i’m going to join the queue
me: the LINE.
friend: who says that?
me: this could be an advertisement for Rockstar energy drinks
friend: what did you just say?
me: advertisement (pronounced: ad-ver-tees-ment)
friend: i can’t do that.
me: you can or you can-not?
friend: cannot. can’t you hear it?
