10 things I love about America
My next post for the book summary is coming up soon inshaAllah.
But today I am feeling a little bit down, so here's what I am doing to lift my mood up a little, I am listing 10 things I love about America.
1. Farmer's markets
2. Thrift stores
3. The Madison birth center
4. American's who speak English with a thicker accent than I do( a nation of immigrants). I actually remember this cool story. about 4 years ago I was visiting my husbands family before I moved here, and I was buying a sandwich from a food stand , the sales guy asked me for something I didn't quite get, I made him repeat himself about three times until he finally rolled his eyes at me and whispered to himself "stoopeed fooreignooor". It's true I am the foreigner, that spoke better English than he did. But he was the American so, he won:)
5. Online shopping.
7. Netflix ( we currently don't have it and I am trying to convince the husband to renew our membership, any suggestions?)
9. Sidewalks( we don't have them in Egypt)
10. The 4 Seasons ( same as the above)
Wow I think there are more things I can think of, but I'll leave you with these for now.
If interested, you too can join. List from 5 to 10 things you like about America, either if you're an American or like me, A Stoopeed fooreignoor:)
Btw, this actually worked I feel a lot better.
