LOL.

That’s funny.

My FI moved to Indiana for me, from California. On one of our late summer nights, he was staring out the windshield, and he was like, OMG WHAT IS THAT?! I’m like.. WHAT?! He’s like, THOSE LIGHTS THEY ARE MOVING?!

…..

…..

They were lightning bugs.

He then explained to me that California didn’t have them, and that he thought they were something made up for movies.

I found out that my SO will only use 7 squares of toilet paper..I can’t remember how or why I found that out but I thought it was the weirdest thing ever.

@jenilynevette:  I’m an indiana girl too 🙂 I love the feeling of seeing lightning bugs for the first time each year. They really bring out the little kid in me!

Also, a coworker didn’t know what a Kiwi was. So I bought one, chopped it up and brought it in. He likes it!

@KJA00:  I know! I love seeing them and there are usually TONS of them in summer. I just can’t believe he didn’t even know they were REAL!

I have a friend who didn’t know platypus (platypuses?) were real. She thought they were unicorns.

FI had never seen anyone eat an artichoke. We had them at a family dinner with my parents. I kept wondering why he was staring at my plate – I found out later he was waiting for me to eat mine so he could figure out how to eat it! It’s now one of his favorite foods.

When I first found out SO didn’t like mayo I was pretty shocked, well he more like hates mayo (can’t stand seeing it, smelling it, definitely can’t stand tasting it, hearing about it, or anything else that may in any way, shape, or form resemble mayo) lol I love potato salad, macaroni salad, sandwiches, etc etc which obviously contain mayo so yeah I was pretty shocked & it was kind of hard getting use to & is still a lil unbelievable to me at times lol but he’s given me his explanation as to why he doesn’t like it, i guess I’m just still a lil in shock. Sometimes I  still have my lil moment of “why” lol

@jenilynevette:  When I moved from California to pa, seeing lightning bugs for the first time was the weirdest thing ever! I pretty much had the same reaction. So funny.

One of my teachers likes to close her emails with “ciao”. One day as we were leaving class, one of the girls said “ciao” to imitate our teacher. One of the other girls said “huh, I don’t get it” so she explained that she was saying “ciao” as in “bye” like our teacher uses it in emails. The other girl says “I still don’t get it”.

So someone says it’s Italian, like “ciao, bella”. Then she said “oh, I didn’t know it was spelled that way and when I saw C-I-A-O I thought it was some kind of weird spelling for “see you” “.

But then again when I first learned of the food “quinoa” I didn’t see it spelled out and it sounded like “kinwa” which is how I figured it was spelled. I also knew there was food spelled “quinoa” which I pronounced in my head as “kwin-oh-ah”. I didn’t realize they were the same thing until I saw “quinoa” written on a bag of it in the store, haha.

My boyfriend was with me and was like “uh yeah…how did you not know that”.

When I was little platypuses (correct!) were my favorite animal.  I was at a friends house and said the word and her mom called my mom saying I cursed.  My mom had to stop laughing before she should expalin what it was!
