Today’s conversation of the day (loosely translated from Chinese)
2 Starbucks employees talking.
Woman: My English name is Susan.
Man: I’m Evan.
Woman: Edan. Sounds good.
Man: Susan, Susan…what does “Susan” mean?
Woman: I don’t know.
Me (eavesdropping): We foreigners have no meaning. If a name sounds good, we like it.
Man: Oh. You know, meanings are really important for Chinese names.
Me: Yeah, I know.
