Someone stopped me and asked for directions this morning. I understood her Chinese completely, but I still didn't know where the restaurant she wanted was. She complained about my not knowing.

About the same time yesterday, I was sprayed a little in the face with herbicide being hosed over the fence of the local university. "{Be careful,}" I told someone else and pointed at the hose. He looked, saw the hose, and then turned to stare at me.

A small student, not in any of my classes, told me this afternoon, "{You're a foreigner.}"
