Lessons from a Korean mother-in-law (part 6)
This is a post, in a series, dedicated to a mother-in-law that I deeply love and dearly miss. All posts in this series are true events that happened to me.
Except the decorations were my bra and underwear, not tinsel and stockings.
If mom is air-drying my undergarments, then why isn't she using the drying rack? I thought to myself.
Sitting on the floor eating dinner that night Sung Hyun looked up at the bra on the wall. "Mom, did you try on Jennifer's bra?" he asked aloud.
Glancing up from my bowl of rice I paused.
Mom grinned, put down her chopsticks and without hesitation placed both hands on her chest. As she cupped her hands away from her chest, as if to demonstrated my bra on her body, she replied "WOOOOOOW, SO BIG!"
She smiled at me and Sung Hyun laughed.
"MOM!" I yelled.
