Michelle, who has been studying Japanese, went out to dinner with her co-workers. Some of whom got into a conversation in that language.

“Did you understand any of it?” I asked her.

She got this rapidly-growing impish grin on her face. “Only one phrase: ‘I understand what you’re saying here.’ ”

A punchline is always the best way to start anyway.

Ha! Well, at least she picked out that much. Her ear – and knowledge – are sure to expand from there.
