Haiku Friday: Shock it to Me
What I’ve learned this week:
Romania has Snickers.
And fresh, fresh produce.
If you pantomime
“Fly swatter” to the store clerk,
He’ll point you to tongs.
Take a shower and
You’ll see why all the bathroom
Floors have drains: things leak.
Doing yard work in
Speedos is apparently
A whole lot of fun.
Bike helmets, seat belts,
Car seats, shopping cart buckles:
As rare as ketchup.
Have you ever experienced culture shock? What seemed normal somewhere else that wasn’t normal to you? How do you — and your kids — adapt to new situations?
