Other things I missed about the States

Chipotle wasn't the only thing I missed about the States. In no particular order, here are some other things:

1. People. This includes family and friends, which are in short or no supply here (thus far).

2. Mrs. W's mother's cooking. Mmmmmmm. Stuffed shells...

3. An abundance of trash cans. You won't find many on the streets here, what with the Irish Republican Army's habit of dropping bombs in them and all.

4. Driving. Yes, it's annoying to hit traffic and try to find a parking spot, but there's something uniquely American about hitting the freeway with the windows down and the radio blaring Bon Jovi (or something like that).

5. Shops that are open past 6 p.m. Because you never know when you might need a toilet bowl brush or a strapless bra.
