What I LOVE About America – Part 1

You stay classy, Italy.  It’s been unforgettable.  But, it’s about time for…

  • Having a conversation.  Whether it’s knowing exactly what it is I’m ordering at a restaurant, expressing myself so a new friend actually gets who I am, or telling someone off, we know not how greatly language is taken for granted, until we no longer have the words.
  • An unlimited supply of ketchup.
  • Pedicures.
  • My sweet, sweet iPhone (Personal reason.)
  • The ability to get all your errands done by 9AM, if you should wake up too early, accidentally.

  • Flat, boring roads to drive on.
