Hey, what’s up?
Harry gets greeted at school by this cool bloke at the Before-School Care thingymabob and he always says to him: “Hey Harry, what’s up?”. Harry sort of smiles and nods and doesn’t know what to say, because this is an American-kids-stylie greeting that he is not familiar with. I think he thinks he is being asked “What’s the matter?” and he can’t think of anything that’s wrong so he just doesn’t give any kind of response.
Today I told him that the cool bloke is just saying “Hi, how are you?” and that he just has to respond with a “Hey, good thanks, how are you?” or similar and that he’s not actually asking if anything is wrong/the matter.
I have to refrain from giving my down-with-the-kids “Hey, whaddup” response myself. I promise that I shan’t do that – ever 😉
Best Tweet ever
My editor at the Baltimore Post Examiner wrote a super-cool tweet about me/my blog today:
“#followFriday @ukhousewifeusa for fearless enjoyment of life….”
I love it! Thanks 🙂
A few of my favourite things….
So, today was spent doing a photoshoot in and around Columbia and Ellicott City, picking out a few of my favourite things that I have encountered here in my little part of America over the past 16 months. Not all of them, mind you – I’m not done yet! There are plenty more to come!
The people and the funny little things that make me smile, or the places that I love to go to, all got one of these cards (or I left one on the doorstep!):
Anyway, enjoy these pics! (FYI, I’m in my UK Desperate Housewife USA winter gear – I contemplated the Daisy Dukes, but it was toooooo cold!)
And that completes today’s in-and-around Howard County photoshoot, and indeed my blogging over the holibobs. What fun!
So have a fab/amazeballs/brillopads/merry/happy Christmas/holidays/festive season.
Thanks y’all, it’s been a blogging blast this year! 🙂
