Overheard: Favorite Asian Grocery Store

Lovely Young Tawainese Woman Store Owner: Your baby is very cute. 

Me: Thank you! We like him a lot. How is your son? He must be big now.

Store Owner: Is his father American? You know, the baby's father? His skin is so much different than yours.

Me: to self: her probable definition of American = White Guy

Me: aloud: Yes. (Secretly proud of myself that I didn't ask a follow-up question about whether she thought I was American also - I probably would not have liked the answer)

Baby steps. Baby Steps.
