BUBBLERS! YES! I may now drink soda instead of pop and say "bag" like the rest of the country (instead of like in "bagel," though this linguistic retraining has made me get very verbally confused when I actually say "bagel" - and yes, I realize that probably makes no sense to anyone not from WI).

BUT THEY WILL NEVER TAKE AWAY MY BUBBLERS!

This is such a cool themed drinking fountain (okay since I have so many Wisconsin readers, I’ll be honest – it’s not a drinking fountain, it’s a bubbler. Okay I said it… I feel better now…)
I feel so much better now that you said that too! When my kids were little and we were out of Wisconsin traveling. I would have them go and ask someone where the bubbler was! They would get the strangest looks! (I know I'm a mean mom!) It didn't take long for them to figure out what I was up to!

Yay! I knew people would know what I was talking about. Drinking fountian is just too long and laborous for what it is. Bubbler is so much better I get weird looks when I say it too - but that could just be because I'm me...

Actually, I drink soda too, so I can't fault you for that.... and I followed your linguistic lesson perfectly - which probally should scare you a little As long as you can still say "Ma-waa-key" correctly, it's all good


Once we were at Jiko, talking to the bartender, and he asked where we were from, since we had a couple drinks in us, the drawl was unmistakable - usually I try to hide it at least a bit. We said "Ma-waaa-key wi-SC-nsin" he just looked at us and shook his head and said "yes you are" He was from West Bend, and said that people from all over Wisconisn would tell him they were from Milwaukee, but he could tell the people who really were, because they pronounced it "correctly"

Haha... my mom would do the same thing I wonder if there's anywhere else that calls them bubblers? We should start a bubbler revolution

My DBF always makes fun of me on Kali. I put on my wonderful poncho & he refuses. Of course, we always get hit really bad, and then he is stuck walking around with wet shoes and clothes. I never intend to brag about it to him after the fact, but I am always just as dry as can be Some day he'll learn to listen to me! haha

Bubblers and soda! I was asked what a bubbler was once, it was funny as heck! I never thought I had an accent, until I heard it back on my sister's answering machine( she lives in Illinois ) I said "ya hey" and it was eye opening

It's so fun having all these Wisconsinites on this thread - you guys "understand" me! I used to claim I didn't have an accent, but now I embrace it. I'm from Ma-waaa-key, yah hey?

Day 1 - Part 5 - Is the yetti camera shy?

Then it was time to use our fast passes for Everest, so again, we had the conversation, and headed to Everest.







I asked DH if we wanted the good camera for the ride. He asked why? I said, I thought you might want to bake a cake. He looked at me really perplexed. Poor man. I'm pretty sure he left his brain back in Milwaukee! So I explained that usually he likes to take pictures from Everest, so I thought he might like to have the camera.

He looked at me like I had just explained to him how to tie his shoes for the first time. Finally he took the camera, and woke up a little. When he saw the trains and realizes there was machinery.





OMG this is a rollercoaster?



(These pictures since taken by DH will be told from DH’s thought perspective…or at least my take on his thought process) I’ve taken a picture of my wife to distract her. Now back to my true love.



Hey good lookin’ do you come here often?



Uh…oh… she’s on to me… maybe if I pretend to take a picture of her, she won’t notice you…



Uh oh she’s on to me… I better warn her about Yetti…
Me: Yetti?



Here we gooooooooooo….





Yetti!



Machinery?



(to quote old Stacey) There doesn’t appear to be any track up there…



Me: Whaaaaaaaaaa?????????



Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee



Uh…oh…. Not again….



we’re going down….



We went into the shop and saw, what for us was the funniest ride picture we'd ever taken. We normally don't play it up for the camera, so this was just priceless!



Then as we left Everest, DH’s brain went back to sleep… I’m not sure what it was about Everest… maybe the Spirit of the Yetti that inhabited me in June? But at least he was conscious and rocking for 1 ride!

Your conversation is like the buzzards on the original Jungle Book

Whatcha wanna do

I dunno know. Whatcha wanna do

I dunno know but let's do SOMETHING

ANd do you recall the one who announces, "I've got it, this time I've really got it"

But none of them like his idea so they go back to asking each other what they wanna do.

Sorry, I guess I amuse myself too....

Enjoying your TR. Your DH took some good pic's of EE.

THe picture you took of him after riding KRR

First off, I am loving the discussion about bubblers/soda. Seriously it is a bubbler. I remember one of my high school teachers (who lived in Illinois for a while) was at a mall and asked where the water fountain was, wanting to get a drink, and someone showed her to the actual fountain (like where you'd throw pennies in the water).

LOL at the conversation with your DH too. Sometimes we'll have conversations like that where we don't know where to go and then someone will suggest something and someone else shoots it down.

Doesn't your DH know he's in Disney World? haha You handled it much better than I would have. I'm pretty sure there would have been some choice words for wonderful DBF!

I'm jealous of your Everest pics. I always want to have my camera out on that ride, but I'm so afraid it'll go flying!

LOL!! Your husband cracks me up! He did get some good pics, though - what kind of camera is it? I have 3 different cameras, two of which are professional quality, so I never want to take them to WDW. I do have a point and shoot, though, and that's what will be making the trip with us.
