Half Japanese

Today I had to go over to Rockridge to pick up my keys from Rebecca. While walking to her salon, I stopped in a shoppe that sold some trinket type things. A lot of the things were Japanese, so I assumed the owner, who was Asian, was Japanese as well. So we started speaking in Japanese, and she was so stunned about how well I spoke, that she asked if I was half Japanese. Which, is now the second time I’ve been asked if I’m half–of course I made the obvious joke of being half and having blue eyes and blondish/brown hair, but I guess they were just too impressed ;)
