“One time when I went to England, I met up with some of my friends and they took me to see Buckingham Palace. It was amazing.
But while they’ve all probably been at least once before, I didn’t know policies or anything like what to do or what not to do while I was there. For example, I didn’t know that you can’t go near the guards, so I walked up to one to get a selfie and almost got killed. Well not quite.
He took out his sword and pointed it in my face. I’ve never been so scared in my life. It didn’t help that all my friends were British so they couldn’t stop laughing at me.”
