When you are walking home from the supermarket, listening to your Welsh lessons on the
MP3-thingummy, and are overtaken by a couple speaking German loudly so that you can
hear it through the Cymraeg, and you whip out the earpiece quickly and also step up the
pace to keep up, because they are 30 years younger than you, if a day, with legs a
metre longer, and are not weighed down by a heavy rucksack.

You give up when you realise that "out of breath stalker" is not exactly an enviable
look, and go back to the Cymraeg.


*National Stereotype alert* - you are however, quietly amused to see them take the long
route around using the official footpath (two sides of a square, more or less), while
you take the diagonal shortcut (equally safe, but quicker....you still don't catch up
with them though. :-) ).

When someone tells you that they're not interested in learning a second language, and you genuinely feel
sorry for them.

Wow, you really like your oi ocha! I drink hot sencha when out in town eating sushi, and love preparing matcha when I have all the utentsils, if that will abate my death sentence for now...

Otherwise I'm more of a pot o' tea, milk and sugar guy (perhaps accompanied with a slice of homemade cake or a dunking biscuit on a good day)...call me a traditional Brit in this resepect if you will. ;)

When you read something in French without realizing it's in French until the language switches to English.

:-) Can you get Hobnobs in Hawaii? Perhaps fellow UK members can organise a Care
Package of them for you. (One of Peter Kay's stand-up routines is very relevant here)

Oh, I dream of hobnobs, real bacon sarnies, and roast Sunday lunches with all the trimmings (I wonder what the equivalent craving is in other countries?). Care package...yes, please!!

Until then I'll make do with my Amazon shipments of Scottish shortbread and Yorkshire blends. :)
