I was in the local newspaper a few weeks ago. We won the 2019 Language Learner Literature Award, so the local paper was interested in our story.
I live in rural Japan, and many people read the local paper. Since I was in the paper, people have been saying “I saw you in the paper!”
I know some of these people. They are neighbours, acquaintances, and clients. But there are some people I don’t know. Some people I have never met see me and say “I saw you in the paper!”
Maybe this is what it is like to be famous!
