Okay, first I got my a.m. laugh going with the "My Grandpa's Dead"(no pun intended) post. By the way....very impressed with your ability (& inability) to speak Chinese. Plus, that was 2 1/2 years ago. Your Chinese must be much better (and in some parts, still bad & incommunicative) by now.
Then, the shoe story just did me in. "Rainbow Trout" as an adjective for feet never crossed my mind. I see others with their feet hanging out of sandal-style shoes & I just can't go there. But, now I know that's a regular thing in Shanghai.

Have you worn the shoes, ever? Are they trekking back to the states?

You have quite the knack for comedic writing, Kris.

I live in Shanghai, China, with my Irish
husband and Vietnamese daughter.
Throughout the past four years, I've
crisscrossed the globe more times than
I can count, and while doing so, have
discovered what a kooky, miraculous,
and lovely place our world is. My experiences
enlighten me, inspire me, and crack me up.
