Woman on train: “You Irish?”

Me: “Nope.”

Woman: “Jewish, right? My first boyfriend was Jewish. He had the softest hands.”

    How did she know you had soft hands?

    Yes, I frequently find myself opting between Irish and Jewish when trying to discern approximate heritage.

    So you’re just as taciturn in person as you are in most of your blog posts? ;)

  4. 4

    So then, you’re Japanese?

    Maybe the woman was just going with stereotypes of people with red hair?

    I do not remember this episode of ‘The Mysterious Traveler’.

    Oh, come on. If you expect us to believe that this was a real conversation, at least transcribe your pronunciation correctly.

    Interesting engaging in conversation with random passengers. It has also caveats. This is why I decline to engage in conversation with unknown people whether on a train, internet or skype. Maybe, I belong to an old era.
