When You Have Perpetual Brain Freeze

, , , , | Working | December 14, 2019

(I’m visiting my boyfriend from out of state. He takes me to a local ice cream store, and since it’s slow, we’re talking to the one employee there.)

Employee: “Oh, where are you from?”

Me: “I’m originally from Washington state, but I’m living in [State] now.”

Employee: “Oh, so, that’s… in Mexico, right?”

(My boyfriend buries his face in his hands and is trying not to laugh.)

Me: “No, it’s in the northwest United States. Up near Canada?”

Employee: “Oh, so you’re Canadian! Your English is really good! How long did it take you to fly over? Or did you take a boat?”

(I couldn’t even think of a witty response.)
