Driving home from work today it suddenly hit me that we have been in country almost six months to the day. Man, time flies when you’re having fun! I guess it’s time for a reality check. Have I become Australian?That thought prompted me to look around and asses: what is “typical Australian” and have I gotten used to it yet? So here goes…
Women wearing thongs with a business suit. – Jup. No problem there.
Actually knowing that thongs are slippers, not women’s underwear. – Check.
“Hi, how are you?”, and actually expecting an answer. – Very much so!
Watching a Hollywood movie and thinking that they are driving on the wrong side of the street. – Weirdly, yes.
Vegemite. – Ugh, no!
Barbie in the arvo. – Yumm.
Lamingtons. – Even more yumm!
Knowing the difference between a Cappuchino, a Flat White and a Latte. – Call me a coffee-snob, will ya.
“No worries.” – Standard vocabulary.
So far, 8 out of 9. Should I get worried? 🙂
