:: Thursday, January 23, 2003 ::

Hmmm... For the first time in my meager existance, a girl actually flirted with me. It was quite an unusual experience. She was 17 and working at a clothing store downtown. She asked me where I was from, where I went to school, how old I was, etc. This would never ever happen in the United States. We talked for a while... She wanted conversation; I wanted to bargain for a lower price on a super-cute Doraemon keychain I really liked (it's acceptable to bargain in certain places here in Taiwan). I think we both won in this situation. She wanted me to teach her an English phrase, and in exchange she would lower the price on the keychain. So I asked her what she wanted to learn in English. She thought for a really long time, and then she said she wanted to learn how to say "I really like you" in English. I swear I'm not making this up. So I taught her, and she giggled a lot with her co-worker, but I got a discount in the end. She was rather nice, actually. Too bad I don't go for Asian girls...
