Last night I did something I’ve never done before. I didn’t snowboard, crochet or sky dive; I didn’t even ride a helicopter. I met another blogger. Another expat-from-Scotland blogger.
I had been excited for weeks and when it came down to it, I was surprisingly shy. It’s like, you get to know someone through their written brain thoughts, and when you’re suddenly sitting in front of them, watching their mannerisms and facial expressions you notice from photographs, there’s suddenly no room for words.
She was just like I had imagined: sweet, funny, sarcastic and very personable. I only wish we didn’t live a state apart. It was hard for me to leave. But shhh! Don’t tell her I said that, she’ll get a big heid.
After we left their place we stopped by Subway. I have never seen a Subway like this one. It almost resembled a drive thru bank. It had a huge wide drive up window, a bank audio system and a Subway girl with a headset. The most eyebrow raising aspect for me was one smaller window filled to the gills with notices:
Was that Subway here? How strange.
It was so surreal having you here. I felt a little shy too but not uncomfortable. Like I could have just sat there for a while saying nothing and it still would have been fine because when we were chatting we were having a grand old time!
I hope my mannerisms and facial expressions didn’t leave you speechless in a bad way! Oh my! The boys warmed up to me quite quickly though *smug*
You need to visit again.
PS. Why didn’t this post come up on my google reader?
Oh my goodness! You met another Scot. How exciting for you, dear.
Wow that is bizarre. I don’t even think most banks have rules like that.
Oh how fun! I’m glad you had a good time. Does she live in the same town? As for the signs, my goodness! My favorite–about the Subway card, dang, talk about rude. They don’t do the card here anymore–where you get so many punches and then get a free one? Do you have the same card?
What is her URL?
I know how excited I always felt when I met another Scot expat!
Just the shared grammar fur a start! Gonnae no’ dae that? – for example!
