He held up a placard that said, "Have you seen my clothes?"

I thought he wanted a car up his arse

Last month, I failed in writing 4 blogs. Hopefully, this one doesn't count by quantity.

Right now, the Chinese culturally minded students and those actively engaged in conversing with Americans and others who speak English, think it to be a "one way street". Not only must Westerners become aware of the Eastern cultures idiosyncrasies, but the "shoe is more often on the other foot". Asians must be aware of the things that make Americans great and their cultural traits are inherent in their behavior and thinking patterns. I have lost some very good friends and interpreters (men and women), for this reason. I hesitate to use the words stupid or insensitive, but for the very reasons they voice concerns about us, they are guilty "in spades". I am who I am and cannot be too sorry for that. Many choose to insult me and leave my active company, because of being too "narrow-minded" and unable to "see past their own proverbial nose". I do have many friends in China, most can speak no English. Once they think they communicate, they fall "flat on their face". It is OK, as none will ever speak English (really) and my friendship would have put them in a superior position to all their peers. There was the Chinese English teacher in Wuhan, who think that she knew how to pronounce the name for the 'guitar'. Well I have played this six stringed instrument since 1957 - and she is correcting ME ? She had the Spanish pronunciation down pretty well, I will add. I studied French, Turkish, German and Italian, as well as Mandarin. I like language and try so hard to teach people here. Their previous education (or lack of good English teaching) brings me to tears. I love the Chinese who enjoy English and will always try to help them with music, poetry, art, architecture and English grammar.
