The other day, Stick was playing WarCraft, and I went out to run some errands. I’d somehow totally forgotten how China is for the single Western girl… I guess having Stick around cuts down on the catcalls. I was walking just outside our complex when about half a dozen men on bicycles came up behind me. They shouted the usual HELLO! and other less appropriate remarks, assuming that I don’t understand the Chinese for baby got back! (But I taught middle school, I can pick the dirty words out of a conversation!)
As they passed me, I noticed that one of the bikes had a bright plastic babyseat attached to the back.
