In Britain they’re called “Hundreds and thousands”. She likes to point to random things in the house and tell Chris what we call it in America “We call that suitcase”.

Most of the time it’s something that shares the same name in England, but for laughs, Chris will call it something completely different to mess with her “We call that a travelling box”. At first, when we first started dating Chris thought I was an alcoholic!

He is less inclined to wear tacky t-shirts and exposing his boxers with saggy jeans.

I’ve never been a girl who desired dating a guy from outside of the US, but I wasn’t opposed to the idea of it.

Christopher and I have been dating for over a year now, and I can honestly say that dating him has been very exhilarating.

To this day, there are still things that Chris and I stumble upon that have different words or phrases in our countries. It will throw me off from time to time in our conversations because naturally my mind has to “translate” his sentence and covert it within seconds before I truly understand what he was talking about.

For example,“Sprinkles” or so we call it in America, edible confetti-like sugar bits in a variety of colour. My family loves it when Chris comes over to visit, especially my young cousin Kacy.

When I first went to England I was there purely to have fun, and enjoy my time with my lovely friend.

Meeting Christopher and developing feelings for him was a complete surprise!

I have been correct more than once about this observation. They are something you wouldn’t see an American guy wear unless he was going to work some where professionally, or dress for a formal event or party. I thought only women’s shoes had pointy tips like these, but I was surprised to see that British men will rock them too.

I’ve seen guys in England wearing these shoes around town while shopping, having a night out with some friends, and even at a house party. I imagine if an American man wore them, he’d feel like a clown, their dress shoes are not nearly as elongated as the styles I have seen in England.

In Autumn and Winter I enjoy drinking hot apple cider.
