She met and married a Japanese man, thereby changing her name to "Sarah Arai." The new last name quickly became a family in-joke; since the verb "arau" in Japanese means "to wash," Sarah was soon known as "Dishwasher" to some friends and family.

It should probably be explained that the Japanese word "sara" means plate or dish. So the kanji that she uses to write her name, 皿洗い, actually does mean dishwasher.

Anyway, comedy manga isn't really my thing, but I like the personal touch behind this. Keep on working and inspiring us Sarah.
