Vacation

Kids are in midterms this week, so I’m going to Taiwan tomorrow.  Which is exciting, except it’ll be a bummer not being able to read anymore.  I’m considering not attempting to speak a word of Chinese the entire trip.  It’s a tonal language.  I’m too worried I’ll ascend when I should be descending and and accidentally ask a shop keeper if he copulates with his produce.

  1. Sara you clearly are missing an important component of being an american traveling abroad. All this trying to fit in and assimilate learning people’s languages etc.

    You either have to be a total asshole and only speak english in ever increasing volumes, which you clearly already abandoned. But that only leaves you with saying completely inappropriate things in other peoples native languages for their amusement. Think of yourself as a non-racist wackadoddle version of Borat.
