No it didn’t take me 6 tries to order the actual dish I wanted from the Korean store. It took 6 family members to make sure I got it right!
My last post got one of my aunts, Aunt Phi craving for Korean food!
As Aunt Phi and I were going over our game plan for when and where to meet, we asked ourselves a very importantquestion, who’s placing the order?!
Solution! We decided to invite the “smart and intelligent” one in the family, Aunt Be. For some crazy reason this lady knows how to speak a whole bunch of different languages! So now we have Aunt Phi, Aunt Be who brought cousin Logan because they were already together and then me!
But that wasn’t enough. If all of us go, Grandma has to go! (Grandma is a packaged deal when inviting the bunch above.) I volunteer to pick her up.
Now, it’s Aunt Phi, Aunt Be, Logan ( and his 6 Lego people), Grandma and me. I felt bad I didn’t invite my mom so I sent her a quick text. She responded by telling me Aunt Phi already called her and that she’d see me soon. News travels fast in our family!
Okay now it’s both my aunts, cousin, Grandma, my mother and me. We sit down and as we look around at each other, we know we are missing one more person! Five minutes later, the eldest sister (another aunt) comes and joins us! It’s a packed table now. We eat, we make fun of each other and share stories. It was great hanging out with my family! I think my family felt bad for me for not knowing how to order and wanted to make sure I was fed so they all agreed to come. Haha.
After all that, I didn’t even touch the Bim Bap Bap thingy I originally wanted. I was having too much fun being with my family.
