Trying to Talk to the Natives

The Australians are out in force at the Holiday Market, and I make small talk with a couple of them as I wrap up their purchase by commenting on the cold, and how it’s practically summer Down Under.

“Yeah, it’s probably...,” one of them thinks for a moment, “sixty degrees or so in Melbourne today.”

“Did you just do a Celsius to Fahrenheit conversion in your head?” I ask, laughing. “You are an excellent ambassador for your people."
