As some of you may know… My boyfriend is from Vancouver, BC. I thought it’d be fun to post some of the most frequently asked questions/comments I get when I tell people in America about my Canadian beau. Don’t be offended if you’ve asked me these questions, I was just as unaware before I met him too. :)
Q: “So then, your boyfriend is white?”
A: No, he is not.
Q: “Does he say ‘eh?’”
A: Yes! Matter of fact he does! Not as often as you may be imagining, but he says it enough that I’ve actually found myself saying it too, sometimes.
Q: “What’s the time difference between here and Vancouver?”
A: *Chuckles then replies* No difference. Vancouver is only about 1000 miles north of us.
Q: “What language do Canadians speak?”
A: English and French. But mostly English.
Q: “I bet he’s kind of like an eskimo, huh?”
A: No… Not so much. We met at a club in Vegas. Not sure how often eskimos do that sort of thing. (I know, super romantic. Buzz off.)
Q: “He must be really good at hockey.”
A: He’s basically a hockey encyclopedia, but he doesn’t play hockey.
Q: “There are people in Canada?”
A: Wait, really?
Q: “Do they have shopping malls in Canada?”
A: Canada is not a third world country. You realize we’re on the same continent, right?
Q: “Is his favorite food maple syrup?”
A: I’ve never seen him eat maple syrup before, but I’ll find out.
