When you stub your toe, your "ouch" is sometimes in another language.

When you can witness for Christ to anyone anywhere in any country--but your homeland, where people seem too strange.

When you can't get any of your favorite foods in the homeland!
When you think football is played with a round ball.

You know you are a missionary in Ireland when it REALLY gets your goat when people refer to you as living in the UK

Still separate countries, but the border crossings are gone. You travel 120km an hour on the M1/A1 as you cross the border.
You know you are a missionary when travelling in the US a mile seems like FOREVER compared to a kilometre.
