How much can life change in three years? The answer… a lot. Since we have been back several things have caught my eye that are different or new than when we left. Before you look at the few things on this list, I will readily admit…they are stupid things. There have been more serious things, but it is late and I didn’t want to post something heavy. After all, as my friend Cortney often tells me, it is not good to eat after 7:00 p.m. So maybe it is not good to write about serious stuff after 7 at night either.
First, on the list we have….
Second, is the…..
redbox??? What is that?? That’s the same question I had. If you should arrive in America after living overseas for a few years and decide to go rent a movie, you will be hard pressed to find a Blockbuster anywhere. No, instead you will have to go to Wal-Mart (and maybe other stores … I have only noticed them at Wal-Mart). There you will find a big red box where you can rent movies for like a $1. Crazy.
Third, we have the Kindle or some variation of it.
News of these had made it across the ocean, but I had no idea how popular they are. Are the days of flipping pages really gone….really? I am not a technology-hater, but I just really like the sound of pages turning, the joy at closing the back cover and putting the book back on the shelf.
And lastly, the reason I thought about doing this post in the first place (Mainly because I ate about a quarter of the container tonight before dinner) we have…(drumroll please)
Philadelphia Spinach and Artichoke Cream Cheese. Just stop and minute and think about that. I would like to thank Paul’s parents for introducing this high calorie but s0-delicious-I-could-eat-the-whole-container snack to me. It is great, fabulous, tasty, and will make your jeans tighter in the morning. So be warned.
