Damn, I forgot to buy milk. Now I have to drag myself to the convenience store, just to fulfill my ambitions to have a coffee. The store guy is giving me this vague smile of welcome. Does he recognize me, or is it a general vague smile. Don't know. too fuzzy to care. Select milk, and coffee. Store guy puts down the book that he's reading. I glance at the cover. Hangeul. As I pay, I ask him, - So you're Korean? He looks up, startled, perhaps seeing me for the first time, and says, Yes, How did you know. I point to the book, and say, I recognized the script. He says, Ah. Well maybe he didn't say ah, but I am already moving out of the store, mentally making my first coffee for the day.
