Normally, this is not an issue of consequence, but over the past couple of days I've had some interesting "flashbacky" experiences of the sort that occured regularly when I was fresh off the boat. They made me want to respond in interesting ways.
- The "where are you from?" question, eight million times.
- The "how you doin', Mate?" impersonator who thinks that mimicry is the sincerest form of flattery - and keeps it up for much of the day. I LOVE that!!
- The "you're unusual... I think I'll just giggle" 'phone correspondent.
