I liked the story. Little adopted Chinese girls is not a made up thing, especially in New York, it seems.

It is almost entirely true. We stayed at the B and B in the story and she was trying to adopt a girl and mentioned that all the adopted kids in Austin seemed to be Chinese girls. Not all named Lily though. She was as kookie as the woman in the story. Probably my story most based on real life.

We saw comedian Judy Gold tell a funny joke: "The other day I saw a little Chinese girl in Park Slope and, amazingly, she had two Chinese parents."

Likewise lots of Korean boys.
