So I talked to my mom on the phone tonight, and I realized that aside from impromptu swearing lessons and the occasional snatch of song, this has been the first time in many months that I have talked to someone--really talked to someone--in Chinese.

It feels so weird. It's like I've rediscovered my ethnicity all at once. I'm a totally different person in Chinese. A much shallower and more easily excitable one, at best. I don't have an accent when I use simple words, but I appear to have a strange habit of never knowing what to say--if only because my brain is searching for words I don't know.

On a happy note, thanks to the machinations of her friend Angel, my mom is now the guardian of a little gray kitten named Happy. A tiny creature to love is exactly what Mom needs right now, and I'm glad she finally got around to having one. I look forward to meeting it when I visit home this summer. I hope it likes me.

And it is rather glowing.

Gushing praise aside (lofty words don't seem appropriate for such humble work), they tell it like it is. I'm proud to have been a part of it. Thinking about going again over spring break, now that the jury duty ridiculousness has been sorted out.

Well, maybe not--but as close as we will get.
