Garage Sale or Yard Sale: What’s the Right Way to Say It?
Traveling is awesome. There are so many exciting things to see in the world. I’m a firm believer everyone should live in a state outside where they grew up for one year. It opens your eyes to how the world outside your bubble operates. Living outside your comfort zone for a period of time drastically improves you as an individual.
One thing you’ll learn traveling around the United States is people in various states say the same thing differently. What does that mean? For example, growing up in Boston, Pepsi, Coke, Sprite, etc. are all known as “soda”. If you’re at a restaurant or a friend’s place, you ask what kind of soda they have to drink. But if you were in the midwest region, such as in Chicago, you’d ask, “what kind of pop do you have?” The south simply calls everything in the soda family “coke”. Which is somewhat confusing when you want to order a Pepsi.
Most people in every state don’t bother with the word “can”.
Sneakers all day. If I’m not playing tennis, they aren’t tennis shoes.
This last graph is regarding how many syllables are in the word “caramel”. I have no opinion either way as I’m not much of a fan. Peanut butter candy all day!
