Canada, Oh?

June 27, 2013

I’m participating in the Great Canadian Blog Bash this year! It runs from June 27 – July 11. Check out their website to link up with other Canadian blogs!

A few years ago (five I think? It was right before I turned 30. Geez), I went to California. The purpose was a business trip to San Francisco, but I have a couple of friends who live in Southern California and decided to make it a combination business/pleasure trip.

We had a blast! I stayed with my friend E, who at the time lived on the Balboa peninsula in Newport Beach. One night we found ourselves at a local club and met up with some of E’s friends. There was a guy with them, who had obviously had some drinks. When I travel, people love hearing that I’m Canadian and always have fun things to say about the Canadians they meet but this guy said something that has stuck with me ever since. A little mix up on our most famous Canadian trait!

Drunk Guy: You’re from Canada?
Me: Yup!
Drunk Guy: Oh?
Me: …?
Drunk Guy: OHHHHH?
Me: …?
Drunk Guy: …!
Me: Ohhhhh! You mean Eh?
Drink Guy: Ya, don’t you say that all the time?
Me: Sure. And we live in igloos too!

    I used to live in Hong Kong, and one girl I met asked who was taking care of our sled dogs while we were away. The kicker? She was from Washington State, just across the border from BC.
