Trawling through old Tumblr posts I found this and it made me laugh all over again. Swan is my work colleague, a really sweet lady from Hong Kong and she is often brutally honest, yet in an incredibly innocent way.
Taken from a post on 25th February 2011
During the endlessly long car journey to Brum yesterday….
Swan: So what did you study at university?
Me: I did two years Theatre Studies at Kent and then two years English Literature at Luton.
Swan: *looking shocked* Really??? (imagine her saying that in a high-pitched Chinese accent) So you did not study the fashion?
Swan: *looking more shocked* Wow. So how did you come to work in fashion?
Me: I seriously have noooooooo idea. I wouldn’t even include it in my Top 5 Life’s Passions. Fashion is not my passion. And yet somehow I have managed to blag a career out of it.
Swan: *looking bewildered* Oh. (long pause) That’s so weird.
I spent the rest of the day wondering what the hell I am doing with my life. I still can’t work it out.
