Chinese Lessons?

So having a Chinese last name can be a little confusing to some people. I acquired mine by marriage. Its funny to see the look on people's faces when they realize that although I may look a little, very little, twice removed, if you wink and stand on one foot, Chinese; I only have the last name. In fact, I couldn't be further even if I tried. But don't get me wrong. I love the Chinese culture, and some day, I'll even visit that wonderful country. Ok, I love the food most of all. But for now, I would be happy with knowing the language. I'll tell you why. Telemarketers. I wish I could understand what they are offering me. I'm sure its not a million dollars. But It would be so much fun to say "I'm sorry, but the lady of the house is not here at the moment. She has a meeting at the White House" or maybe "She can only take calls on Mondays at the looney house" Oh, that would be so much fun! I think I see Chinese lessons in my future.

On another note, I figured out how to add my favorite Etsy shops to my page! yay me! Here are some of them so far.

  1. That is funny! I am in a similar situation, because my husband has a spanish last name and I am so, so pale! People call all the time speaking spanish and I just say I can only speak english. It is funny, though, because many times they will say,"Oh ok". It makes me wonder why they don't just tell me what they wanted in English, but they never do. Go figure!
