This is {Wherever} Wednesday #18

  February 1

This post may contain affiliate links.

For anyone new around here, welcome to This is {Wherever} Wednesday where you get to dish about all the crazy things that happen where you live.

It could be silly like being late to work because of a chicken crossing or sweet like someone giving you a free ice cream for no reason.

Either way, I want to hear about it! All you have to do is write a fabulous post and click the “add your link” button at the bottom of this page and follow the directions. I also ask that you link back to the party so everyone knows where to find other fun hometown stories.

I always put “T.I.G.” at the end of my posts which stands for “This. Is. Grenada.” It’s a little thing we say around here when things are totally bizarre (or totally awesome.) I hope you’ll join in and have fun!

Here are my favorites from last week:

Gale talked about the hilarious state pride in Texas.
Marisa is always so funny when she talks about Detroit.
Stephanie talked about traditional Grenadian dishes and why they might not be your taste.

And, here are ours for this week:

Hot water miraculously returned to my little apartment (but let’s not jinx it.) For about two months, we’ve been taking cold showers and patting ourselves on the back on just how adaptable we’ve been. But, the other night, I got in and it was burning hot! I was so, so excited and then made sure to make it quick so hubs could have a hot one too when he got home. T.I.G.

I learned a “go box” is called a “lunch box” here. I had a little bit of an awkward moment asking for a go box and being confused when the restaurant worker said he was going to give me a lunch box. I thought for sure I hit the jackpot and was about to acquire something fancy, but no, it was just a go box under the guise of a new name. T.I.G.

I really enjoyed teaching a modern dance to my hip hop group. I’m so lucky to be surrounded by smart, talented people every week. I can’t wait for our upcoming performance (which I will share with all of you like I did last time.) T.I.G.

  1. I LOVE all of your performances so I am most excited for this next one!! woohoo!!
    And you’ve been having cold showers for THAT long?? That’s just insanity! I can only imagine the little party you had when you finally felt the heat coming from the pipes!! Hope it sticks around for you!!

    (Ps My gmail keeps messing up and I am trying to reply and it won’t let me… so expect an email tomorrow but it may be from my hotmail email address!!)

  2. go box = to-go box. I had confusion about this in NYC when I asked for a “go cup” at a restaurant and the bartender looked at me like I had three heads. Apparently in NYC they don’t do “go cups” and you have to finish an alcoholic beverage in the bar.
