In Texas things are familiar, common, and normal.
In Washington D.C. things are weird, out of the ordinary, and abnormal.
In Texas, we have a Walmart in almost every town.
In Washington D.C., they have a CVS around every corner. There is no “running to Walmart” up here.
In Texas, we drink everything on ice.
In Washington D.C., they are like the British and serve drinks with no ice.
In Texas, we say y’all. In fact, that is one of my favorite Texan things.
In Washington D.C., they say “you guys, those guys, and anything else with guys on the end.”
In Texas, faith is an integral part of life.
In Washington D.C., everyone knocks on wood. In our case, fake particle board wood.
In any case, Washington D.C. is quickly becoming more familiar and less weird. City life has it’s benefits but that doesn’t mean I’m not counting down the days when I come home…44 days doesn’t seem so far away. Nothing can compare to home sweet Texas.
