Expatriate Davy B. (Part 2 of 2)

“One thing no one can take away from America is their superior junk food. I went to Taco Bell three times this trip, because I missed it (they used to have only one restaurant in London, and it closed years ago). Also, all these new soft drink variants have yet to make their way across the Atlantic: Vanilla Pepsi, Lime Coke, Remix Sprite, Baja Mountain Dew, Mountain Dew Code Red, etc. I tried them all. And all the candy bar variants: M-Azing, Almond Snickers, Pina Colada Almond Joy, and so on. I tried all those too.”

“I don't think you appreciate how good you have it over there.”

“I also drank root beer a lot, because I hadn't had it since the last time I went Stateside.”

“I'm back in London. Now I miss New York. What say you, me, Tom and Jay get an apartment in Greenwich Village together? If a fight breaks out, I'll take your side over theirs.”

“I rented four Woody Allen films in the US that I hadn't seen; so no one can say my vacation was a waste.”

“Did you know that ‘Firevaney’ was the name of a Kazakhstan god who controlled his devotees' plumbing?”
