Sticking my foot in my mouth… again

Nepal. That’s where he was from. Awesome. Cool. That’s great. “I’m so globally aware. I’ll talk to him about Nepal,” is what I thought as my Lyft driver brought me home a few days ago. “Oh nice. I have some friends who live over there in India but I’m not exactly sure where,” is what I said. He responds.

I go further explaining it might be in Nepal, but I know for sure it’s somewhere in India.

I’m thinking to myself, “Nepal is the capital city of India, right? RIGHT???” Why am I getting the vibe that I’m a total idiot? Oh man, what am I doing? He kindly mentions that Nepal is close to India, he must’ve realized I was thinking Nepal was in India.

I try to play it off but I’m sure he was thinking, “This crazy white guy is clueless.”

But I’ll say this, I’ve watched Hotel Mumbai. Great movie. I know Mumbai is in India. When Nepal comes out with Hotel Kathmandu I’ll be a lot more geographically sound! Until then I’ll just try to keep my mouth shut!
