We are having fun noticing the differences in American life and our Jamaican life. The princesses are adjusting back really well.
You Know You're From the Missionfield when...
1. The question, "Where are you from?" always makes you stop and think how to answer. I have to decide how much I want to explain to the person.
2. You don't think two hours is a long sermon. Funny how long sermons over there don't make me drowsy at all, but a/c is soooo comfortable!
3. You consider haggling with the checkout girl for a lower price.
4. Fitting 15 or more people into a car seems normal to you.
5. You're grateful every time you find a public restroom...and then even more grateful when it's clean.
6. Drinkable tap water is amazing to you.
7. You keep forgetting that it doesn't matter what time of the day or weather you do laundry...they have dryers here.
8. Hot showers....wow it's been awhile!
9. Just the simple thing...like checking out in Walmart is intimidating. Can I still add US money in my head? And putting gas in a vehicle....scary.
10. You cringe when you're at a restaurant and see people THROWING AWAY food.
11. You don't recognize any song on the radio.
12. You have to think before you speak. Certain topics or statements are a big Taboo here.
13. Bumper to bumper traffic at 90 miles an hour doesn't even faze you. There's no real excitement until there is a deathly sharp cliff a few inches from the tire!
14. You have to explain to your children what a dishwasher is.
15. It feels like everyone around you is extremely busy all the time, and people here walk really fast.
