Since coming my hubby has experience many firsts. He's learned a lot, discovered a lot and been all over the state with me. Here's a list a few of the things we did together in the first week:
- Saw an American movie in a theater
- Saw a woman with bright pink hair - this happened on day one, yes Virginia you were showing your Wal-Mart.
- Saw his first American butt crack - yep, again we were showing our Wal-Mart.
- Saw his first snow - it was only 3 inches but more than enough to make him happy.
We also went to a local park/fishing area and saw the ducks and crazy rednecks in waders! Which by the way was hubby's first ever experience with a real redneck. He was fortunate in this local native also had on the traditional RealTree camaflouge and full waders while he walked in the cold river to catch fish. Thank you Virginia for not short changing my husband on the full Appalachian experience hahaha.
We only had one minor incident this first week. Your's truly, being the overly observent (*sarcasm*) person that I am, took hubby out to one of her favorite buffet's. His first buffet. It was a local Chinese place that is just fabulous. I helped him pick out foods and we loaded his first plate with coconut chicken, General Tso's chicken and more. Finally we found some momo's (aka. potstickers in the US). I just knew hubby would love them as we shared potstickers often in India.
We sat down to enjoy our food and things were going well. I was almost done with my plate when I bit into the potsticker. OMG! I realized that these may not be chicken. They could indeed be pork or beef which hubby is just not ready for. It was too late, he had eaten some. So I ran to the buffet to check and see what meat they were. It wasn't posted. OMG! 30 years of non-beef and pork eating had just been ruined. Oops. :P
Hubby wasn't mad but I did get a dirty look and then he stopped eating them lol.
