I was 19 and spending a year in Germany as an au pair. I was having a great time and seldom missed my family back in the USA (or so I thought). One day I was at a park in Munich with the kids I watched, when a lime green renault drove by – just like the one my parents drove in NH. I started waving my arms frantically and yelling, “Mom! Dad! Wait for me!” Oops…wrong car, wrong continent. Yeah, I looked dumb.
