My desk is in a high-traffic area of the office, right by the door to the bathroom here, which means that I look up every time someone makes a move to the facilities, just to see if they're coming to speak to me or they're just passing by. Usually I accompany this with a friendly smile, or a nod, and say "hi" or "hola" or "bonjour," because I'm all multi-culti like that.
Yesterday, one of the writers stepped up to the plate, and threw Yiddish and Japanese greetings at me. I don't know Yiddish and Japanese. But! I have now bookmarked this page. We started off with Albanian this morning. I plan to move to Arabic next.
