While visiting my daughter during her term abroad in Ireland, we got to meet some of her new friends. These people, from Germany and Finland (and a couple from Australia), are helping her out so much, we decided to pay them back with silly American gifts.
First, we gave them some yummy Sanders chocolates from Detroit. Next we fed them what one student labeled fluffy “sugar and fat,” or Twinkies as we call them. We even brought along some “stroft” American toilet paper, but the most obnoxious thing we gave them were these.
To our credit, they asked ahead of time for kitschy, zany American items.
Our daughter will surely be friends for a long, long time with these wonderful people, despite our ridiculous gifts. And no students were harmed in the making of this video.
