Conversation 2/17/09

At a Ramen Restaurant…

Student: This is a famous ramen restaurant…

Me : Oh really! You know I walk by here every day and never noticed it.

Student: It’s owned by a North Korean!

Me: A Korean? A North Korean? You mean South…

Student: I mean North. North Korea.

Me: Wow! Did he Defect?

Student: Defect? Nani sore?

(Student whips out a handy electronic dictionary)

Student: Oh! No, he was born here.

Me: He was born where? Here, here? In Yokohama?

Student: I don’t know. He was born in Japan.

Me: Then…isn’t he Japanese?

Student: No.

Me: Has he ever been to North Korea?

Student: I don’t know

Me: Can he even speak Korean?

Student: I don’t know.

Me: Ok…this is delicious by the way. Thanks for showing me this spot.

Student scratches head and smiles.

Student: Everybody knows he’s North Korean.

Me: Ok…I’m sure he is. Only, in America, if you’re born there then you’re American.

Student: This is not America.

Me: That’s for sure…American Ramen can’t touch this!

Words I love…

Everybody is a star
I can feel it when you shine on me
I love you for who you are
Not the one you feel you need to be
Ever catch a falling star
Ain't no stopping 'til it's in the ground
Everybody is a star
One big circle going round and round
