One of the highlights of my summer has been visiting my Canadian friend who now lives in California. We spent as much time on the beach and in great restaurants as we could, and had a blast! My friend was so excited to have people around who use words like “parkade”, “toque”, and “garburator”, and who brought her Tim Hortons coffee and ketchup chips. I find it interesting how something as small as the words we use and the treats we enjoy can contribute to our national identity, even across such a small distance as the Canada/US border, but nonetheless, it was a wonderful vacation, and I was glad to be able to bring my friend a little bit of home.
