Did you know I was Korean? Neither did I.
Yesterday I went to my favorite Korean market, H-Mart. They just opened one in my town this spring. I signed up for the "frequent shopper card." You get a $10 gift certificate for every $1,000 that you spend! Isn't that great?! Or maybe it was $5,000. Either way, I have a little more to go. Yesterday when the cashier scanned my card, my name appeared on the screen, "Daun." My name is "Dawn." I think it's funny how those 4 letters that even make up a regular word in the English language are often messed up. "Daun" does sound much more Korean though. My last name is much longer and most people don't even attempt to pronounce it, let alone spell it. But even funnier, they got my last name spelled correctly. All 73 letters!
