My friend (I'll call her Frances) told me a couple funny stories today about her adventures with one of her friends and since she's not a blogger, I thought I would pass them along. Thanks, Frances!
Frances took her Korean friend to a Japanese restaurant. Since Frances' friend speaks five languages fluently, she decided to order in Japanese. As she's speaking to the waitress and hostess they just look at her a bit dumbly and then reply, "Sorry, we don't speak Japanese. We're Korean."
Frances' Korean friend, who grew up in an influencial family, is interested in what style of furniture in Frances' comfortable, country house. Friend asks, "Is it Georgian, Victorian...?" "No," Frances replies, "it's more Early Poverty."
