The rest of your friends show up within minutes. You stand patiently with your friends, making light Chinese conversation for what seems forever. You have seen many people seated and can’t help wonder when it will be your turn. Returning to the Chinese hostess, you ask once again in Chinese, “How much longer will we wait?” Once again, she replies in Chinese, “Just another moment.” You hope she’s right this time because you are about to crash and burn from not eating earlier in the day.
