I met a brown girl at the mall this past Saturday, she was with a friend. I looked at her and her friend and just assumed that she and her friend were probably like me and my friends; people from different areas of English speaking countries that are in this beautiful country to teach English to the locals.
After a few more beers, I walked over to their table and introduced myself. I asked the lady where she was from; I had previously assumed that she would probably tell me that she was from England.
I couldn’t have been more wrong; she was an Indonesian, born & bred!
I asked her had she ever been to the USA and she said no but she would love to go. Then I told her that she would fit right in because a lot of people look like her in the USA! Then she said,
“Then maybe I won’t visit because I am different here and I like standing out.”
