Today we begin the last leg of my countdown.
I shall call it,
“Twelve Days ’til Phoenix!”
(Really, I started with yesterday’s entry but calling it ’13 days ’til Phoenix’ didn’t have the same original ring to it! *SNORT* )
Why am I doing this? Well, I’m feeling a little guilty for flooding your in-box with little pictures of numbers.
But not guilty enough to stop doing it! 🙂
So to compensate I’ve decided to make them a little more fun.
I promise to write something interesting to accompany every days’ count. It may be a fact, something about me, a random tidbit that pops into my head, something I’ll miss about Germany or (like today’s entry) something I’m looking forward too when I’m back in the states!
So, here we go!
There are now
days left until I move home to the States.
One of my very favorite fast food restaurants is Sonic. (And yes, they have them in Del Rio! I checked)
Every time I’ve gone home to Phoenix to visit the first thing I want (after Starbucks of course) is a Route 44 Peach Ice Tea.
I particularly love the little crushed ice.
Weird? Maybe, but remember…
I have lived in Europe for three years. They don’t use ice. EVER. AT ALL.
Finding this out when I got here was absolute culture shock! Remember that I’m from a desert! NO ICE? NO WAY!
Well, here I am three years later and I have discovered something very disturbing about myself.
I am now Ice Retarded.
I can not drink out of a glass with normal ice in it without slopping it all down my front. I try, I really do! If I can unlearn how to drink with ice in three years then I should be able to relearn how to drink with ice in no time.
Apparently sometime in the last three years I’ve passed the Old Dog age line and can no longer learn new tricks.
So Sonic, with it’s lovely little crushed ice is my friend!
Ahhhh, excuse me while I go off to daydream about my Route 44 Peach Ice Tea…
