Or Does Anyone Know if I Should Order Dinner for My Children from the Seat of an Outback Toilet?
I’m sitting here watching a series on Netflix called Very British Problems. The episode in question is discussing how to deal with other human beings; such as what is and isn’t acceptable and how discomfiting any interaction with other members of the human race is. Thankfully, I was born in Australia. And thanks to my adoption, all of this social awkwardness has not been passed down to me through my British genes. However, thanks to a sterling anxiety disorder, I do harbor enough of this Very British Problem that anything outside of the social norm is a veritable nightmare for me.
But seriously, these droll, British comedians would have a stroke trying to navigate the minefield of Outback social… niceties. Outback Queensland is a unique place.

The answer is a resounding yes. Yes, she did.
