I know you.

“You were in the TV. You said many words in Mongolian. So I know you.”

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, my howling red deel and I were on (TOWN NAME REDACTED) local TV, making all kinds of statements and saying all kinds of words in Mongolian. Now people recognize me when I’m out doing important things like carrying horse-in-surf holograms I just bought or loitering near the chaperone’s table at high school/college dances. It makes me feel like Harrison Ford.

O broken language! Hurtling out across space to you and then back through space to me! My language all broken up with your language, clanging around like so much broken glass in a dirty tube sock.
O let’s make out or something.
I’m in the TV.

His name is my name

So to kick off my weekly Speaking club, I had all the younguns pick out English names for themselves, partially because I remember so enjoying choosing a German name in middle school German class (Petra) and partially because I still can’t seem to remember Mongolian names to save my life.
