Something Seven Something

Whenever I heard someone speaking Chinese, I try to eavesdrop. It’s usually pretty unsucessful, I have trouble recognizing even words I know in a different context, so usually I’m all “Seven! He just said something seven something! Yes! I’m so smart!”

    I’m glad I’m not the only one that does it. My problem is that I have a hard time discerning individual voices in a noisy environment unless it’s one I recognize or am concentrating on. Good thing I’m a librarian.

    Oh man, I’m completely lost if there’s any one else speaking. Or if they have a tiny accent, or speak regular speed… What I’m saying is, I can follow an extremely slow conversation with very limitede vocabulary — sometimes!
