What's this?! Another post?!
Yup. I'm feeling prolific.
Maybe this happens in other countries as well. There is this funny assumption that we Americans have that once a foreigner spends some time in the U.S., they'll inevitably want to stay. Folks often assume that since my fiance came here temporarily for work and then met an American girl to marry, we'll obviously be staying here. In fact, people are generally surprised to hear that he's moving back to Denmark and taking me with him. They're even more surprised to find out that I'm thrilled at the prospect, and that he's not just dragging me along.
That's not to say that there aren't things about America that I will miss.
We were having a discussion just now about the little things he thought he'd miss when he left England for Denmark originally, and whether he was right or not. For the most part, he does indeed miss things like good quality English curry, readily available stilton cheese, great pubs within walking distance.
What am I going to miss about America?
The first thing I thought of was pizza. New York style, thin crust pizza. Just thinking about it has made me decide to order pizza for dinner.
And Buffalo wings. Though, the fiance's gotten pretty good at making them, so I won't miss out too much.
And, strangely enough, I think I'll miss Target. Lots of fairly decent stuff for cheap, and all in one big room. I don't think Denmark has anything like it, but I'll be on the lookout.
