Translation

 
When I was in college I met a guy from Taiwan. I don't know how he spelled his name, but it was pronounced Hi Ho. Since then I've wondered how my name would translate into Mandarin, and if the people around would be amused if they heard it.

A few years ago there was a woman at an International Folk Festival painting people's names in Chinese. She didn't laugh when she wrote it, but maybe she was just being polite.
