Watashi no namae wa danieru desu.
danieru desu ka? omoshiroi. Itsu kara danieru wa nihongo o benkyoshimashita ka?

In case you don't speak Japanese, the conversation above is translated below

My name is Daniel!
Daniel huh? Interesting. When did you start studying Japanese Daniel?

You might think the point I'm trying to make is that I should have studied more before talking to this random stranger, but then you'd be dead wrong.

The point is that I did talk to this stranger, and that he is no longer a stranger, and that even if I made a fool of myself, it's better to try and fail, than to fail to try.
