I had Random.org select a page for me and it selected page 103.It feels like family, everyone’s chopsticks poised, cradling their small bowl of rice to their chests. I watch as Ah-Jeff goes for a thick mushroom only to have Baba snatch it from under him. My father laughs and winks at me as he slurps up the slimy mess from his bowl.
I can’t remember the last time he did that with us at home. I’m happy to have this moment with just us but I can’t help but feel a teeny bit guilty that Ma, Lily and Michael aren’t here.
