My grandparents moved from Kentucky to Michigan over 40 years ago but aside from my uncle and his family, and my mom's cousin, my extended family still lives in Kentucky. It's been almost 20 years since I last visited and I definitely felt like a fish out of water. I was born in Boston and I've lived here my entire life. I have traveled to other parts of the country so the differences shouldn't surprise me, but they always do.
Differences between Boston and Kentucky:
- Homemade sweet tea
- Cherry coke in vending machines
- Everyone has an accent. I act as if I am accent-less.
- I speak too fast.
I would like to bring the girls to Kentucky to meet family there at some point in the next few years. You know, before they refuse to be seen with me.
I was going to talk about my adventures flying on "regional" planes but I need to get to bed. It's already turning out to be a rough workweek.
