A New Installment: Jersey Things
I’m starting something new on my Tumblr: Jersey Things.
I work as an Admissions Counselor, which requires me to travel throughout northern New Jersey through mid-November. Over the course of the past 9 days, I’ve observed some curious things about Jersey. I’ll be revealing them, one post at a time.
Jersey Thing #1: I was in Panera today, looking to grab some delectable comestibles, when a woman asked me if I was “online.” It took me a solid 3-4 seconds to understand what she said and subsequently answer.
"Online," in my MA linguistic experience, means that I’m on the Internet, which isn’t far-fetched in a place that has free wi-fi. I must’ve looked like a moron, fumbling for words to find an answer for her.
Next Jersey Thing: the breakfast situation.
