Misunderstanding is not always fun, but the story was and it still is funny: Yellowjacket or Yellow Jacket??? 😂

Standard

When we first arrived to the United States in May 2008., we didn’t speak English at all. Misunderstanding was our every day life, and even though I hated that time of my life, the situations we found ourselves in were absolutely hysterical. However, this is the one of my favorite stories from that time.

It was early July 2008., and my husband and I were invited to the dinner/party at the friends house. When we arrived there were some unknown people, but we pretended like we speak and understand English language and we managed to smoothly go through the evening. We mostly stayed isolated, and we tried not to interact with anyone but our host. Around 8pm they called everyone to move to the porch for the dinner. After everyone joined the table, they served the dinner and we all jumped on our food. And everything was fine until this one guy started to yell: “Yellowjacket, Yellowjacket!!!” So the guy jumped from his seat and was beside himself running around the table and yelling: Yellowjacket!!! My husband and I look at each other, and we didn’t have a clue what just happened and why this guy needs a yellow jacket to eat his dinner?!?! It almost looked like the guy lost his mind. He was jumping on the porch like a mad man asking for a yellow jacket, or better to say yelling: Yellowjacket, Yellowjacket. After some time, my husband got tired of his yelling and he tried to calm the guy down. However, now knowing the difference between the Yallowjacket and the Yellow Jacket, this was the most hilarious dialogue I have ever heard.

My husband (all calm): “Hey buddy, let’s eat and I’ll get you a yellow jacket later. Just sit down, please!”

The guy (Yelling): “Dude, what do you mean you’ll get me a yellow jacket, there are Yellowjackets everywhere and I am allergic to their sting. If they bite me I may die.”

My husband (still calm and not fully understanding the English language): “Why do you ask for yellow jacket if you think you’ll die in it?”

The guy (still beside himself, almost crying and looks like he is about to have a heart attack): “What the f*** are you talking about, dude??? I am allergic to the Yellowjacket’s bites!! Don’t you understand??”

imageMy husband (still not fully understanding the issue): “Ok man, if you are allergic to that yellow jacket, you can just stay in that black jacket. Please sit down and eat.”

Now, the guy was livid (clearly hating both of us), but everyone else was laughing so hard, they were dying. To be honest I didn’t understand the English language either, and I wasn’t sure why the people were laughing and why the guy was so mad. I can only say that the guy looked like he could kill both of us at that exact moment, but I still wasn’t sure why… My husband just wanted to calm him down and eat our dinner in peace. 😂😂😂

Learning English language is hard!

Shoe Shopping = My Passion + Stress Relief

Standard

                                      shoe_shopping 

I just got myself pair of the cutest soft-blue booties ever thanks to mu stupid, rude co-worker that hurt my feelings this morning! I really had a rough day at work, and I just needed something to calm me down.

Since I was a little kid I was obsessed with shoes. I always wanted to have them in every single color. Although, that was not the case in my childhood I couldn’t resist making my dream come true. So now as a grown-up woman while making my own money I am finally able to fulfill my wishes, and I am doing it. Needless to say that I own nearly 100 pairs of shoes, and YES all different colors and models.

Beside my shoe-passion, I also truly believe that shoe-shopping is the best stress relief; at least it works for me. I am pretty sure I am not the only one that feels this way.

Do you agree?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Treasure

Standard

Treasure of our love is a little seashell with our names on it hidden in a deep, wild forest thousands of miles away from us now. Even if it’s almost 20 years ago, I can still feel the smell of the forest with all its beauty. Needless to say, I remember every single moment of that glorious morning.

Happy New Year!!!

Standard

Over the past decade, every New Year’s Eve I challenged myself by setting up a few personal goals for upcoming year. Sometimes I was successful by achieving them, sometimes not, but these responsibilities were there to keep me motivated during the entire year. However, I am constantly determinate to achieve my goals weather they are big or small, more important or less important.

2013 was one of the better years in my life. On New Year’s Eve 12/31/2012 I have set up a few very important goals in my life, and am very proud to say that I have accomplished all of them. Some of my goals are always on the fun part of my life and of course connected to traveling, and I have to admit I have traveled this year a lot. I have seen lots of exotic, lots of historic and lots of very interesting destinations this year. I feel richer for a quite a few great experiences that I’ve gained through 2013. I hope that 2014 will be if not better, at least as same as 2013 for me.

This is one of the less important goals for 2013, but I am so proud and happy, and I just want to share this with the rest of the world.

People, I have finally get rid of my facebook account!!! I wasn’t even aware how addictive was that social network, but I have realized that I am spending more time on facebook that I should really do. I kept looking at it, reading some nonsense posts, adding other people to my fb friends list (people that I really don’t know), just because I didn’t want  to be rude and ignore friend requests from unknown “friends”, and I just came to the point where it was enough. However, I came to the conclusion that the best thing for me is to get out of here. It’s hard because I live so far away from my family and friends, but there are so many other ways of communication that I really don’t need this account anymore. No more stupid posts, no more stupid comments, no more fake lives, no more stupid adds, no more fb. I am a happy girl now 🙂

I wish you all a very happy New Year!!!!Image
