This evening, on the scooter...

I was stopped at a light with two guys on a scooter next to me. "Look, it's an American! You should say English!" the driver said in Chinese. "No, I don't want to," the passenger said. "Come on, come on!" Then, in slow and careful English:

"Calorie. Pill. Whiskey. Guava."

I thought of several replies in English- Hey, my subconscious has a Chinese accent now! or, How did you know my plans for tonight? But the light turned green and I drove away.
