We have had a busy trip so far, it's gone too fast! I spent the first several days Christmas shopping and dealing with car repairs. Visiting with family and friends, Christmas, after Christmas shopping, movies and eating.
One of the foods I miss is Chinese Food, our favorite restaurant is right near our house called Mountain City. This little husband and wife run the place they are both about 4 feet tall, and the hardest workers you will ever meet.
When we lived in Utah we would go there all the time or do take out. My sister and her family have gone there for years as well. One time my sister and I went together....Kin the owner was shocked we were sisters.
In her Chinese accent she would say "you two are sisters"? Yes we are. So the next time I'd come in she would say "your sister is so sexy and You...you are so normal"! WTF does that mean? I would find my self explaining why I was so normal and not sexy like my sister....often I would to do take out on my way home from Gym so I'd be in sweats with messy bun!
Then I would come in and she would say "I no like your hair, you need it cut" why you not like your sister!!
OMG seriously enough little china women! So often on days I had my hair done I found myself wanting Chinese Food, but secretly I think I wanted her to see me looking done and I seeked her approval. SAD I know!
When we would come in as a family she loves my Husband she would say your husband is so good looking and you, you are so normal!She loves my daughter always telling her how pretty she is and how she looks just like her Dad. I don't know why I kept coming back I think I'm crazy. The abuse I took from her for years.
The last month before we moved Katelyn and I ate there a lot. Craig was already in Germany and I was busy packing and cooking was the farthest from my mind. She would always say "how is your husband? He is so good looking....email him and tell him I say HI!! Tell him come see me before you move!
Tonight we paid her a visit .....she said to me " you look good like real Germany women" WTF does that mean? I think it's a compliment.....maybe? She took one look at my hubby and said "you look old"! Hee hee I was laughing inside ....yes finally! She brought us our meal and pretty much stood there while we ate starring at Craig saying you look good but old, lots of grey hair you work too hard. Katelyn she said "you look so smart like very smart girl look like you 18 or 19 years old! Of course Kate liked that....I was just happy I didn't look "NORMAL" but like real Germany women! I'm pretty sure this is what she meant!!
