    Posted with lighthearted intent:

    Massive hailstorm yesterday. We go out and I put some in my hand the size big grapes. Slowly in awe she says: what is hail made of?

    I doubled over laughing and she took it in stride.

    Whatcha got?

    There aren't enough GB in the web to store it all so....

    * When she first moved here to Buffalo, I suggested we go to the beach. She said she didn't want to. Upon further investigation, I found out she has an aversion to salt water (The ocean is about 600 miles away.... She followed her family here, had no idea Buffalo sits on the great lakes apparently...)
    * One time she bit right into a Kalamata Olive, broke her tooth. Said she had never seen an olive that didn't have "the little red thing inside", so she assumed that's how they grew...
    * One time we were driving and she was navigator. She said we needed to turn right at the next street. I said are you sure it's not left? She said no, look at the map!!! (the map she was holding had North facing up, but we were traveling south...) I turned left.
    * She was so confused about the difference between planets and stars that I bought a telescope just to show her.

    My wife, adorable and sweet she is, grew up in Central America. When Van Halen released the latest studio CD (2012?) and they performed live on Jimmy Kimmel.....I was watching and she says "who is that?" and I replied "that is frekkin EDDIE VAN HALEN".........and her reply....

    "Who?"

    That is a cross-cultural marriage in full swing........

    So do female co-workers. We had a power outage at work recently and I had to explain to one woman that the toilets didn't need electricity to flush.
