Talking to a friend a few hours ago made me realize I have no clue regarding Slovenian current “pop” culture. I don’t get some Slovenian “inside” jokes, music trends and the like. I often feel like a retard because some things have to be explained to me like to a 5 y/o. This is often troublesome for me because I have no material for “small talk”. No one wants to talk stuff I’m into (benthos anyone?), I think because they have no clue what I’m talking about. Troo, I’m not that eloquent, and my rants may have no head or tail, but I think I’m the one who should be adjusting all the time. Some plasticity, people, please!
I do notice I can still have a cheap laugh with my American friends, though. Point in fact, most people from Slovenia would not understand this joke:
In what aisle could I find the Polish sausage?”
The clerk looks at him and says, “Are you Polish?”
The guy (clearly offended) says, “Well, yes I am. But let me ask
you something. If I had asked for Italian sausage would you ask me if I was
Italian? Or if I had asked for German bratwurst, would you ask me if I was
German? Or if I asked for a kosher hot dog would you ask me if I was
Jewish? Or if I had asked for a Taco would you ask if I was Mexican? Would
you? Would you?”
The clerk says, “Well, no!”
“If I asked for some Irish whiskey, would you ask if I was Irish?”
“Well, I probably wouldn’t!”
With deep self-righteous indignation, the guy says, “Well then, why did you ask
me if I’m Polish because I asked for Polish sausage?”
The clerk replies,”Because you’re at Home Depot.”

Oh, and can you imagine that some people around here don’t find Family guy funny? Horror! Maybe I really need to move.
