I went up to Ohio for a family reunion, and, though all my family komme aus Ohio for three or so generations now, I was surprised by differences in local customs I had never considered.
|put french fries in their salads
have ice damaged roadways
have too many geese
have an ice cream shop on every corner
|put fish on our salads
have road gators (e.g. truck tire tread)
have too many bugs
have a coffee shop on every corner
Outside of a conversation with a cousin on what road gators were, the things that vary the most about us seem to always be our eating habits. I’ve never had french fries on my salad before, and I have no idea why the people of Ohio require so many ice cream shops in a cold climate.
