It seems like every other taxi driver is a character. There was that lady with the chain-smoker voice who insisted that foreigners are pretty while Korean woman are not. The guy who said something about Virginia Tech, although I don’t know what exactly, since all I understood was the word “Virginia” and “pow pow” with the accompanying hand gesture. My all time favorite at the moment– the guy on Friday night who started singing “Saaa-ra, Saaa-aaa-ra” in the lull after we’d talked about rock music. “Starship!” he said with enthusiasm. And I thought, I cannot believe you know that song. He asked why I didn’t have a boyfriend. If it’s because Korean men are ugly.
Au contraire. You see, I cannot date someone who dresses better than me.
