    This article begins in Toronto a few months ago, when I dragged the friends I was staying with into a Mandarin with me for old time’s sake (mine, not theirs; they all seemed unclear on what Mandarin is, despite all being from Toronto).  But before I can explain what happened then that precipitated us leaving…
