Anyhoo, I’ve learned a lot about American culture during that time. It is very different from living in England. More than water and language separates our fair nations. I sort of feel like Captain Kirk seeking out new life forms and new civilizations, so here are a few things I’ve learned in my time in the US:
1. American TV doesn’t have reruns, it has “encore presentations.”
3. California weathermen really do have the most pointless job anywhere.
4. Americans keep their cats on the inside and the Christmas lights on the outside.
I would like to thank all the people who’ve invited this funny sounding foreign exchange guy into their lives, asked him to repeat what he’s just said because that accent takes a little getting used to and made him very welcome in a place he likes to call his primary domicile. So here’s to the first fifteen years and to the next. Thanks America.
