...waitressing does that to you.

So how does one say "language exchange partner" in Mandarin? Please don't send characters, this computer can't read them. Pinyin with tone marks would be great.

I wrote the pinyin version underneath the characters.

Here are the highlights so far:

*

trooper: "I wrote the pinyin version underneath the characters."

channamasala: "...waitressing does that to you."

Stay tuned next time when channamasala attempts to translate "chicken fried steak" to a drowsy table of EVA airlines flight attendants.
