Humph. Friday the 13th.

Meow is in Seoul. It’s time for her one-on-one interview. She will also turn in all the notarized paperwork we picked up the other day.

I’m left to my own devices for a day or so. My old pal CM and his family rolled into town and we went to Ashley’s for dinner. Instead of eating my crack brownie at the end, I scooped one up on each plate trip. This made my brownie eating experience that much more enjoyable and I was certain that I’d eaten enough proper brownie when I stumbled out of the restaurant a couple of hours later.

After dinner they came over to our little hanok. The youngest boy kept trying to pull Twitchy’s tail. I sort a worried that she’d nip him in the face. She would let these low, “Hey Bub, that’s not cool at all.” types of growls. Naughty attacked him outright, fully running his nasty tongue all over the boy’s face as many times as possible before they left.
