America so far..

It has been 10 months that I set foot in the land of opportunities. And these 10 months have been like an eye opener in a way that doesn't make it so obvious. The cultural shock has been subtle but tremendous.
Americans are funny people, but they are very open-hearted and friendly. Well not everyone really, but most of them are. Here are some things I find intriguing about Americans:

- You know you see an American when the person is a die-hard Yankees or Mets fan and is an ardent consumer of KFC, McDonalds or Dunkin Donuts.

-You know you see an American when majority of the clothes in his/her closet fall under the XL or the XXL size.

-You know you see an American when he/she threatens to sue you because your hand brushed against his/her elbow.

-You know you see an American when all they talk, eat, see or feel is sex and booze.

-You know you see an American when the amount of clothes on their body is directly proportional to the temperature outside.

-And finally, you know you see an American when he/she scores a full 100 on 100 in a DUMB test!!
