the mini mart
The other day, I was standing by some friends and said, " I have to run to the mini mart to get some ice." They both looked at me and said.... "what is a mini mart?" I started to laugh and said, "you know, the gas station down the street?" They had no idea what I was talking about. It made me laugh and I realized that what is said in the Northwest differs from the Midwest.... for instance, we call it a barbecue..... you know, when you cook hamburgers and hot dogs outside. People here call it grilling out. It is funny to think of the differences.. can you think of any more?
