After about 24 hours of travel I finally made it to Belgium! I arrived at 8 am so naturally I ate as much as I could at my bf’s grandparents house and as soon as we arrived home I was out! I haven’t slept that good in a LONG time. The preceding day I we went to a family get together at his grandmother house on his mom side. That was.. fun. After they had gotten me drunk off champagne I went around kissing everyone on the cheek and acting like I knew what the hell I was doing though soon they caught on to me and I was the butt of everyone’s joke.
Ah yes the great thing about being an Alaskan is that EVERYONE has something to say about it. It was all in good fun so I can’t be too butt hurt. At dinner they had constantly refilled our glasses to ensure we didn’t know quite how much we drank. It was like soda at a restaurant an endless flow of bubbles! Anyhow after eating my wait in smoked fish and meat balls they thought it’d be a great idea to challenge me to a little competition, who ever names the most states in 5 minutes gets first dibs on the chocolate mousse!
Still well intoxicated I accepted and won with 29 states listed I even did better than the teacher who had just finished studying the subject! Thus I proved not all Americans are stupid and most certainly aren’t when ever there is chocolate involved! For ten minutes I got to gloat saying well of course I won I’m american of course I know the states. Then I had a convenient bath room break when ever they were stating all of the European countries. My point is chocolate mousse makes for a damn good geography lesson.
