I’ve been getting odd “compliments” recently. We saw Karen’s mom in Korea and she says that I “look OK… now.” We ran into Gloria and Ed and she says that nowadays I don’t look as nerdy as I used to. Uh, thanks?

A conversation I had with Jieun recently:

Jieun: I just talked with Karen.

Me: Oh?

Jieun: Yeah. We talked about deep stuff, instead of the superficial things we sometimes talk about.

Me: What did you talk about?

Jieun: Shopping.

And she meant it. That’s my wife.
