This week the Twitter world was all ablaze with people sharing times they wished the floor would open up and swallow them whole. It was hilarious. So, in the spirit of comradery, I’d like to share my OMG moment, which of course has to do with travel.
I’ll let you in on a secret. I’m kind of a Disney freak. I.LOVE.DISNEY. There. I said it. Hubs, not so much but he loves me so he puts up with my obsessions. Epcot is my favorite park. Not only do they have adult beverages, but you can visit eleven countries in the World Showcase while drinking that adult beverage. WIN! I love wandering in and out of the pavilions while imagining that I’m exploring the back streets of that country. I always feel so happy and relaxed while I’m there, but I digress…
Munchie and I were walking through the World Showcase. We left Italy where she was lucky enough to have been picked to be in the street show. We headed toward Japan to get a kakigori (Japanese shaved ice). Munchie gets to the window and the following transpires:
*side note* Disney hires people from that country to work their section of the World Showcase, so the people working the kakigori stand are Japanese.
Me: Munchie! They don’t say Hola here. That’s Spanish! They say Ni Hao!
Japanese lady: Noooo. That’s Chinese. We are Japanese. We say konichiwa!
Me: *FACE PALM* OMG. I’m sorry! I knew that! I swear I’m not an idiot!
Sigh…. needless to say, we got our kakigori and left quickly. I was so embarrassed! I just know she had, “stupid Americans” running through her head. I called Hubs and told him what happened. He laughed…. So helpful right? We finished the kakigori and hurried to France to get me a few Grey Goose Limon Slushes to drown my shame.
