You Know you’re not in Britain Any More…

… when the only obstacle on the bike path is tumbleweed (it still never fails to amaze me that tumbleweed actually exists. As do roadrunners, although I’ve never seen one) as opposed to parked cars, random temporary road signs, potholes…

You also know you’re not in Britain when people just start talking to you in the coffee shop (we had thought we were going to burn off all the extra calories this morning again, but, you know, if you end up outside a place called ‘the Cookie Ladies’, you’re going to go in, aren’t you?)

Still, that would appear to be the least of my problems (I have suffered from almost all of these at one time or another).

    We do have road-runners in Britain, but they’re human. Plus, you committed the cartoon sin of mentioning roadrunners while omitting any mention of wily coyotes.
    Tsk-tsk.

    Never had much time for Wile E. Coyote. I just like the roadrunner. Beep beep!

    Thanks for the link to the British psyche, that is great.
    I once saw a rude cartoon where Wile E. Coyote caught the roadrunner, I won’t go into details about what happened.
