Foreign Visitors

I wanted to get this up quickly before Shabbat begins.

Comments from Oldest Son (6) when I picked him up from school today:

Oldest Son: Eema, guess what? We had visitors from lots of different countries at school today.

Me: Oh? What countries?

Oldest Son: They came from Israel and Africa and Mexico and New Jersey.

...And what is the official language of NEW JERSEY?

Love it.

Well, what d'ya know, I'm a foreigner--I lived in New Jersey until I was in my mid-twenties. :)

That's a cute one from your son, Sheyna.

Toronto Pearl, at last report, we folks from New Jersey speak some form of American English. Unlike New Yorkers, however, we pronounce the word chocolate "choc'lit," not "chawk'lit." :)

I'm still chuckling over this one. I wondered how many residents (past or present) of New Jersey would agree with him. ;-)

I have always felt that way about New Jersey. Also Staten Island.
