Bird Talk

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

I had dinner with the family last night and was quite amused to hear my dad use the term “get emo” in reference to a farewell party for some of his staff earlier this week. (My dad has always been pretty cool that way.)

On the way to the airport today, anticipating a tearful farewell with the family at the departure gates, I showed Dan the packet of tissue that I had prepared and said:

“Baby, see the tissue here. Later I’m sure to get emo.”

“We’re getting a bird?”

“Huh? What’s a bird got to do with saying goodbye?”

“An emu is a bird right? You said that you were going to get an emu.”

This is the type of conversations I’m going to be having over the next one year. Swell.

This blog is already showing much promise - shall add the rss and live vicariously through you for the next year (or so?).

Sorry we did not get to meet up before you left. Stay safe, and catch up when you get back.
