Understanding Stage, Part II
I believe I’ve come to accept the British system and all its oddities. (In fact, things aren’t odd in London, it’s just that I find things odd because I’m so accustomed to the American system.)
I’m learning how to take pride in being American and finding humor in our stereotypes. I can laugh at American jokes about our extremely large portions and backwards healthcare system, while still refuting stereotypes, such as Americans aren’t very smart or women don’t like sports or we were all in spelling bees at one time (“and still can’t spell words properly!” -I was never in a spelling bee).
