I love and appreciate the differences between cultures. Prime example…
When the English hear we have a pet duck the general response is ‘awwwww, how cute, adorable, what fun’, put in own adjective to demonstrate a lovely feeling.
When the French realise we have a pet duck, after a quizzical look (could be our French), we get a look of dawning comprehension and the response ‘ah, you are raising it to eat’ and a satisfied nod.
I love and appreciate that I live in both worlds.
