好 means good in chinese but what I never realized was that the symbol of the character is a girl and a boy. Ok.. I’m sure I realized at some point but who thinks about something like that? 女 = girl 子 = boy
Corky Chinese awesomeness indeed
I bring it up because today while attending a business opening of my cousins fiance, I was sitting there minding my own business but also listening to my dad and uncle talk. My uncle expressed to my dad how important it was that we have this chinese word in our family. I was quite confused for a minute, until he continued talking about how his two daughters were always fighting.
The concept blew my mind for a few minutes, my brother and I apparently equals good! Dad, being dad, then said “yeah if only they were good.” He is a funny man. Not a very long story- in short, I started thinking about my brother and how fortunate we are to have the parents we have. Every family has their problems, but I can’t be more thankful for my parents, my brother and all my relatives.
I’ll be heading back to Boston in exactly two weeks in which I’ll be in the same time zone as Kevin again. Looking forward to catching up a little bit and hopefully see him soon within the next few months.
I hope to be updating more frequently. Cheers,
