America's weird food is probably because we have such an amalgamation of cultures. Most Southern food is actually North African food, East coast is based on the proximity to the ocean, but inspired by traditional English cooking, the Midwest is influences by the Native Americans, the west by the other Native groups and Mexican food, and everywhere has foods based on different immigrant groups. My hometown is Polish, but the rest of Indiana is pretty German. America!
like, most of the time we communicate okayt but then suddenly I realise that we do not mean the same thing at all, like I’ll be talking about milk or something and you guys will suddenly go ‘ah, yes, milk is so fizzy and bitter!’ and I am like ‘no, milk is like, the mellowest liquid ever’ and then you guys are like ‘what, no, milk isn’t a liquid wtf is wrong with you’
that is what it is like
but not with milk
usually with biscuits or sugar.
