. . . I love my french canadian friends. They call me Rachelle and it sounds pretty. They are also always take off their shoes when they enter the house. This may not seem like a big deal, but growing up in Minnesota, this was just what you did. You enter someones house, you take off your shoes. In California, people are like, "fuck your carpet, these boots are too hard to take off so I'm going to help you lose your rental deposit." But the French Canadians, they take their shoes off every time.
