It’s always the little things in life…

April 27, 2010

Yesterday was all about food cravings…. and then I got a stomach bug (bacterial, viral, parasite – who knows) so today, I’m thinking about all the weird little things about America that you don’t realize you’ll miss when living overseas. This list, like yesterday’s, is definitely NOT exhaustive. So without further ado (mainly because I want to get this typed before my head feels like it’s going to fall off again), here’s my Little List of Little Things:

  • –         Sidewalks
  • –         Fluffy pillows
  • –         American germs – so you  know what you’ve got!
  • –         Spring flowers – especially tulips
  • –         Washing machines
  • –         Constant electricity
  • –         Being paid for work
  • –         Pavement
  • –         An oven
  • –         Sinks with running water for brushing teeth
  • –         Bubble baths
  • –         Clean feet
  • –         Pedestrian right-of-way
  • –         American-style church
  • –         Carpet and hardwood floors
  • –         AC and fans
  • –         Hangers and closets
  • –         Verizon unlimited texting
  • –         Paying by credit card
  • –         Public restrooms
  • –         Clocks
  • –         Mirrors
  • –         Bedside lamps for late night reading
