A Nice Little Chat with the Police...
And no, I'm not joking. Or maybe I am?
Anyway, we've been to Tim Horton's for desert, and on a table across from us, three policemen were sitting, enjoying a doughnut. Two of them were wearing bulletproof vests, but one didn't, so I asked Marina and Steven why.
Marina said the one without probably wore his underneath his shirt, but actually I should just go up to them and ask them. So I did exactly that.
Have I mentioned how extraordinary nice everybody here is?
Me: Err, excuse me, I'm an exchange student from Germany. Can I ask you a question?
P: Of course.
Me: Why are you wearing bulletproof vests?
P: Well, since we're in North America, it's for protection. One of our colleagues had last year actually been shot at. He [points towards the black policeman across from him] and I wear our vests over our Shirts, because we're in the Okanagan valley and it can get quite hot in these vests, so we like to be able to take them off. He [points towards the second white guy] is wearing his under his shirt, so it's a bit hard to remove.
He then asked me how it was in Germany, where in Germany I was from, whether I was the Smith's first exchange student and he said he probably wouldn't allow his daughter to spend a whole year abroad.
All in all, he was sooooo nice! :D
I'm starting to believe that literally everybody is nice here!
In school today there was nothing really important - except that I was told I was writing too German, used too long sentences, too many commas, dashes, exclamation marks and parentheses.
Well, I'm sorry if I'm writing too complicated for the North Americans! Because my experience with writing fanfiction was rather the opposite - English speakers would tell me how nice my sentence structure was!
Is it my fault that a lot of people don't know how to use a comma or a semi-colon (";")?
On next Wednesday we're going to go to Camp Dunlop - I don't really know what that is, but it's an international thing, so I'm going!
And on the Halloween-weekend we're probably going to Vancouver! Yeah! :D
Well, anyway, I'm going to bed now! :D
Have a nice day!
And thank you Mom for the Biology stuff! And also a thanks to you, Linda! :D
