John Travolta and old Olivia were right – ‘those suuuuuummmm-er-eh niigggggghhhttts’ are a blast!
I’ve realised the thing I love most of all about this 94 degree weather we are having in Maryland is the warm evenings – sooooo tropical. You just don’t get that in the UK. It’s a joy to be al fresco. I don’t want to rub it in, UK peeps. Oh hang on a cotton-pickin’ minute, it’s bloody well due to rain on Friday.
Well, that will wipe the smug smile off my very freckly face.
Roller skate dining
At first, when a friend posted about Sonic Drive in Diners coming to our vicinity, I was dismayed. ‘Another fast food chain, just what we need,’ I moaned. ‘But it has staff on ROLLERSKATES!” she replied.
She had me at rollerstakes (which is just as well, as there was no more of that sentence).
A rollerskating drive in diner is so blog-worthy!
Sonic is a fast food chain, known for keeping the drive-in, car hop and mixed fountain drink alive, and it “will feature throw-back style fast food, the restaurant’s signature car ports, and something a little different” (it claims).
The idea behind Sonic is that you basically sit in your car and eat your food.
But in this one that we are getting that ‘something a little different’ is that you can eat IN THE RESTAURANT. Um, does that not make it the same as every other restaurant? I’m confused.
Anyhow, bring on the rollerskates!
Phrases I want to use whilst I am here
‘ALRIGHT ALREADY‘ – I would like to use this, but cannot yet find an appropriate context.
‘HOT DIGGITY DOG‘ – nope, again, I cannot see when I might use this. I so want to though.
In America there are also dizzy blondes – hoorah! I wondered why I felt at home here….
Anyway, this is the conversation with one such American dizzy blonde in a store.
(She is staring at me A LOT.)
“Are you from Europe?”
“Yes I am.”
“My uncle is from Europe. Well, Australia, actually.”
