Last night our kick ass neighbor, came over and gave Bryce the hat you see below
The USS George Washington is apparently docked in Brisbane at the moment. He was invited to come aboard the USS George Washington yesterday for work and they gave him a hat. He told them that he lives across the street from an American so they gave him one to give to Bryce. Pretty cool.
So today the guy that was at my house changing the oil in my car comes up so I can pay him. He sees Lola and cooper and asks if I have taken the kids down to see the “warship”. I had no idea what he was talking about. I thought maybe it was an old ship that tourists go to visit. I told him no. He gave me a weird look and said, well it’s one of yours. OH! I said, you mean the USS George Washington. Yes, my neighbor brought us a hat. I didn’t know it was here I told him. He looked at me like I was crazy. He said, you didn’t know one of your warships was here???? Omg……ok…..just because I’m an American doesn’t mean I know where all our “warships” are sir.
This also reminds me of a story about my trip to quicky mart. The guy behind the counter obviously caught my American accent and said that he has always dreamed about going to America but he’s to afraid he’ll get shot. Really. I told him to stop watching Fox News.
