Here's something that didn't occur to me as interesting until about this time yesterday (two days after it happened): The last picture in Reply #43 (http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,29016.msg292646.html#msg292646
) was taken toward the end of our pizzamaking bash, when I was assembling my two small Tommy's style pizzas. In the picture, I've just grabbed a handful of cheese to put on one of the pizzas. Also, as you can see, I am talking to Leon as he watches me assemble the pizzas.
At about that very moment, Leon asked me what I was grabbing from the big bowl. I answered "Cheese," then paused for a bit and elaborated, "Mozzarella." (Or I may have first said "Mozzarella," then paused and said "Mozzarella cheese.") Either way, I now realize my short answers may not have been very meaningful answers to him.
I had so much sensory overload going on at the time that it just didn't even occur to me, I suppose because of our cultural differences and our respective cultures' vastly different staple foods, that Leon was unfamiliar with the sight of cheese, or even the concept of cheese. Even though there had already been a short discussion earlier in this thread about dairy products not being a part of Chinese diets, it did not occur to me at the time. In fact, I'm still not sure if my answers made any sense to Leon.
Anyway, I thought that was interesting, and I'm probably gonna ask Leon if my answers made any sense to him.
