I thought for a bit and replied:

She accepted the answer. But she is always doubting me. I am not sure if she thinks I am so dum I know nothing, or if she thinks I am always joking. I am so not going to ask either.
I was feeling so clever, so superior. I decided to prove my infinite knowledge:
- It is North Korea.
Unfortunately Emerson was sitting right next to me. And he happens to be clever and well informed AND THANK GOD, full of compassion. He looked at me
It sort of happened in slow motion:
- INAIE, BRAZIL IS PLAYING AGAINST NORTH KOREA AND THIS IS THE SOCIALIST COUNTRY, NOT SOUTH KOREA.
As I said, Emerson is clever, well informed and generopus. He said it in such a sweet way, I did not even feel like an idiot.
