Travel Stories from an Asian Man #4

Links to stories #1, #2, and #3.

Near the end of my freshman year of college, I shaved my head completely bald. Soon after, when walking around campus with my newly bald head, a random woman stopped me and said, “I know where you’re from. You’re from Tibet!”

Me: “Ummm, no, I’m not from Tibet.”

Her: “So where are you from then?”

Me: “I grew up in Seattle.”

Her: “But your parents! They must be from Tibet!”

Me: ????

Her: “You know, your parents crossed the land bridge from Tibet to get to America!”
