on the eve of christmas pt. 3

My parents grew up during the Korean War. This has informed their world view in ways that I cannot entirely understand.

My father essentially believes that if a person is not starving or bleeding, he or she is happy.

Today at breakfast my father in telling me how happy my life is says, "Edith Piaf sings that she has no regrets but C'mon! She's got to have more regrets than you do."

Hilarious! Made me spit my ginseng tea all over the computer screen.
