Bloody Hell!!!!

As a human being, it’s common to be asked, “Nice to meet you, where are you from?”

As an Asian American, it’s more common to then be asked, “No really, where are you REALLY from?”

It’s even MORE common to be asked by another Asian also. For instance, it just happened to me today.

Asian: “Nice to meet you, where are you from?”
Me: “I was born and raised in Colorado.”
Asian: “Oh…you look…your face is yellow orangish.”

(pause and intently look into my face)

Asian: “Hmm…where are your parents from?”
Me: (sigh) “They’re from Korea.”
Asian: “Ah hah! I knew it!” (walks away)
