    I was going to steal this meme, but all my answers are EXACTLY like yours, save one… I call it a “rotary” instead of a “turning circle” because we don’t have them here and the first time I used one was in Massachusetts (where I was told it was a rotary, and it stuck).

    This is kind of odd, because I thought different parts of the country had different names for this stuff… but Michigan and Washington must be “sister states” or something??

    We call them roundabouts. Sometimes they are annoying, especially the little ones, but mostly they’re good and mean you don’t have to stop at a traffic light or stop sign (americans really haven’t gotten the idea of give way signs either – it’s stop signs everywhere which is even more annoying).

    “If in doubt, roundabout” :)

    You’re a soda man! My husband calls it “pop” and it drives me nuts. It used to be called “soda pop”. You don’t walk around calling someone by their last night right? So why would you call it pop and not soda? That’s what I always ask him. I’m slowly but surely breaking him down. ;-)

    Thanks for the nice comment re: my daughter. You’re too sweet!

    I meant “last name”. That makes no sense without last name. Duh.
