I want to be British

I guess technically I’m half British, so I guess the phrase should be I want to be MORE British.


I watch the BBC. I say “progrum” instead of “program”. I’m fascinated by the Monarchy. I’d much rather have a conservatory then a sunroom and I referred to the bathroom as the “toilet”. I call the mail the “post” and often fill my car with “petrol” instead of gasoline. It’s crazy, but I think I was meant to be a full on Brit. I’ve got the bad teeth and the superiority complex to prove it.


I want to forego dinner and have afternoon tea complete with finger sandwiches consisting of cucumbers and eggs, and beans on toast. I want to eat baked scones with clotted cream and preserves. I prefer to eat popovers instead of rolls and crumpets instead of muffins. I believe that bread pudding really does taste like Christmas.
