The person who stole from me didn’t do it in a way you might expect. Money did not directly change hands. This theft was indirect.
A month ago, I was in the first few days of my first visit to the States since I moved to England in December 2006. It was a great trip!

For a little more than three and a half years, I’ve been trying to fit in. Not trying to become British, exactly, but striving to meld my American drive to produce with the British focus on protocol.
