I don’t get it when people act tough, I don’t understand it. To me, when you act tough you’re just saying, “Hey! I’ve been though a lot of horrible stuff in my life. And I survived it, and now I’m ready to attack anybody, like a Pit Bull.” — I want a demeanor that says, “I’ve never been through anything at all, and I’m just a Pug, riding a decorative pillow. Where will I go today, who knows? But, I shall be carried.

I’m from a Northern California town of only 5,000 people, and when I meet new people in Korea, an astounding percent of the time this happens, whether in English or Korean: 

Them: Where are you from?

Me: California.

Them: Oh! Where?

Me: A small town a few hours north of [big city].

Them: *smiling knowingly* What’s its name?

Me: [Town name].

Them: *smile fades*

Me: *simultaneously embarrassed and smug*

It happened again tonight. People think they know California, but I’ve met other Northern Californians who’ve never heard of my town, so you, dude that probably lived in L.A. and visited San Francisco once, don’t have a chance. If I thought you would know the name I would have just said it straight off. Have some 눈치, man.
