“Oh mares eat oats, and does eat oats, and little lambs eat ivy, a kid will eat ivy too, wouldn’t you?”
“It’s only guacamole but I like it I love it, I want some more of it.”
I am reminded in the presence of others, some things I do and say are weird.
We all pick up weird sayings and habits from our families. And it is always amusing and amazing to hear other people’s sayings, and find out which ones of my own are not common.
Coming to college, I found out my mixture of Virginian and Ohioan roots are not the way everyone was raised. It is constantly amusing to hear colloquialisms that were unused in my own home, but used regularly in others.
I love learning these cultural differences.
Who would have thought that I would be talking about the “cultural differences” between someone raised in Maryland and myself in Virginia.
But here I am. I can’t help but laugh after I say something and get that weird dumbfounded look from my friends that mean they have never before heard what I just said. It’s so cute.
And funny, because I do the same thing to my other friends.
What do you say or do that is weird or unique to your family?
