Learn Something New Every Day

There was a young Chinese-speaking woman I was talking to yesterday.  I asked her where she was from and she said Singapore.  Not knowing where Singapore was but later learning that she spoke Chinese I thought that it must be in China.  It's not and I was laughed at by her and her friend.

“You thought Hebrew was a language from Lord of the Rings.”  I responded.  I think I hurt her feelings because that was the end of the conversation.
