“If I had 5 thumbs, they’d all be up!” -review from an 80 year old audience member
just went to the movie screening for a fantastic summer blockbuster (it comes out tomorrow but because of studio contracts cannot say the name here so use yo’ membrane and connect the dots) am now watching it’s predecessor on tv in the hotel room while writing the report. not a bad tuesday.
Currently: Can’t speak ‘merican.
Columbus>NYC I help a Spanish lady out who doesn’t speak English and hand her una pastilla del ibuprofeno when she feels ill and the Air Stewardess can’t help. Feel pretty good.
NYC>Norfok A French woman asks me for directions straight up in French (why me, I have no clue, only to say I was covered in work Olympic gear so perhaps that was a giveaway), I help and reply, even if I accidentally say ‘right’ in Spanish. Feeling pretty great (minus the frenglish hiccup).
Car Rental Office, Airport Have to ask the clerk 3x to repeat himself when he tells me to hit the ‘gree’ button. I thought he was saying green and it was an orange button. Why does he sound like he’s from New Orleans? He was saying ‘agree’. So lost in Norfolk’s accent. Proceeded to get lost due to inability to understand his directions 5 times over. An hour later I arrive at the hotel. Total Fail. Feeling completely lost on every level imaginable. god bless ‘merica.
