What time is it?
PS- this sporting goods store is really great....
Hey, just wanted to update everyone on a fun little thing that happened to me the other day. As, I hope, most of you realized, daylight savings time started a few days ago. On this day I talked to one Mrs. Laura Cosgrove who asked me if we have daylight savings time here in China. To this I replied.... uhhh... I don't know.... As it happened, Brandon had to catch a train back to Beijing later that day so it was, well, more than slightly important that we knew what the time of day was. The only thing I could think of to do was call Laura, my waiban. The conversation went a little something like this:
Me - "hey Laura, it's Stephanie, how are you?"
Laura - "hello Stepherny, I am good."
Me - "well, I have a question for you. This might be kind of a silly question but, do you have daylight savings time in China?"
Laura - "what?"
Me - "um, well... in America we change the time in the winter because it gets dark earlier... so do you change the time here?"
Laura - "change what time?"
Me - "um... the time of day..."
Laura - "....."
Me - "......"
Laura - "no?"
Me - "ok, so what time is it right now?"
Laura - "11:20"
Me - "ok good, thanks"
I hung up and felt like the weirdest person ever... maybe I'll call Laura again later today just to ask her what time it is. "Hey Laura, my watch broke, what time is it?"
