[4-02-12] #143 take a funny picture with the queens guard as I fail miserably to make him laugh, England
Yet another cliche thing to do in England. I came with the incentive to use my natural awkwardness to either A. make him feel uncomfortable or B. make him laugh. However I chose plan C. when I was informed that these guards are men who have actually served in British Military and have been to the war in Afghanistan. Not to mention how young they all were. Inevitably I was overwhelmed by my ignorance and decided to sneak up from behind him and just take a picture. I guess it just shows how naive Americans can be.
P.S. He kept wiggling his nose, which I dearly wanted to scratch and say, “I respect you.” Not creepy at all.
