The kind of conversation you have with your expat American friends

Upon entering the corner shop, a mild confusion sets in. To the mobile.

“Hi, was it chips you meant, as in chips, or chips like crisps?

“It was chips! Like french fries.”

“Ah ok, I thought that’s probably what you meant. But suddently wondered if you were speaking American. Thought I’d check.”

“Well, whichever you want, but chips.”

“Yeah, yeah, chips are good. That’s what I thought you meant. Oven chips. Got them.”
