Overheard at the allergy clinic


Patient: I’m planning on going to Beijing soon. It’s been awhile since I’ve been to China, not since I studied abroad there.

Nurse: Oh, do you speak Japanese?

To his credit, the twentysomething patient didn’t even skip a beat and said something like, “I speak a little Chinese, yeah.”

I guess you don’t really want to correct the lady about to stick a needle in your arm, but still. We are doomed.
