Here is family photo sans Aboji. I sent you this photo of us in our Seoul house in 1954. We had a large spacious house with tatami mats, heated floors and a large yard with a garden. Surrounding it was a cement wall for privacy. The back of the photo gives our names and ages. (The ages are Korean ages, meaning it is one year older than it is here in the western world).
It’s a page from the Alumni magazine
The attached photo is of us at Kimpo airport waiting to board a flight to the USA. We all look miserable and sad because we are leaving life as we knew it back then. I remember the propeller plane, so loud. I remember waking up from a nap on the loud plane and heard my siblings talking to each other — hard for me to believe because they hadn’t spoken to each other for more than a year (and used me as a messenger when they needed to communicate).
Here is a photo of the two cousins (Terry and Tammy) with Teresa and Seung
I got that sweater on a vacation to New Orleans when I was in grade school. I remember my father taking us down Bourbon Street and afterward my dad teasing my brother for “tripping all over himself.” I myself wondered why all the people in the posters there were wearing black tape for clothing.
“Did you like the book you bought?”
“Well, when Sarkan gets…”
“Whoa! you’re not going to spoil it for me, are you?”
“Because I might want to read it.”
The next day, she left the novel on my nightstand.
Here are your mom and dad’s wedding pictures. There were a couple of others that were damaged because they were attached to the album pages with scotch tape.
I found a photo of great grandfather and grandmother Ree
I’m taking the bus this afternoon to meet someone for coffee and an old memory hits me.
I’m in the third grade and the Cub Scouts are going to be performing a skit for the school. My two friends, Kenny and Tom, are going to be playing old ladies.
Browsing through the Tips app in iOS 10, I discovered the new “invisible ink” feature. Time to test it out for its intended purpose by texting dick pics to my boo.
She was understandably shocked (hence the sticker reply)
Her: Let me finish the episode of this Korean drama.
Me: Why you watching that? You have Korean drama right here! *points at self*
She laughed, so I had to tweet it. 🙂
I think the drama was Scarlet Heart: Ryeo, which she described as, “Kdrama version of Outlander.” All I could tell was everyone looks like a girl, and since all asians look alike to me, I wasn’t going to get my head in a knot watching it.
