They now have £28 to spend on their "free" dinner. I'm inspired!
Iza is from Poland and it's great being her friend because we talk non stop about our different cultures and share the odd laugh about being foreigners living in Glasgow. I marvel at her knowledge of the English language and the occasional cultural heurisms that happen when a word is misunderstood (like today when I said she could take a "day in lieu" for overtime she had worked..Why would I sit on the toilet?"). She is fluent after living in Glasgow for a year and every day I'm embarrassed about not knowing another language. And it makes me appreciate my mother's ability to speak three languages even more. Why are parents always right? They said I would regret not continuing to learn French and now of course, seeing as I live in Europe I regret it big time.
Not as much as I regret shaving my legs as a teenager....that's another example of not listening to my mother and another story entirely!
Iza says she will go to a Mexican restaurant because she misses Taco Bell...I'll keep you posted!
