A Little Bit Of Fear

From the moment I first arrived in Japan... until the moment I left three-plus years later... I still dreaded a Japanese person coming up to me and opening their mouth.

The prospect of small talk scared the hell out of me. Quite bizarre considering in any native-English speaking country I am the King of small talk.

I think I was just afraid of looking stupid. And, for me... there is nothing I hate - and I mean hate - more than looking stupid. No matter what country I'm in.
