Dweji Bars

Mother is worried about health. “Amanda! Don’t eat ramyeon. Amanda, don’t drink cola.” I like Dweji Bars (ice cream). If I eat a Dweji Bar while I’m in Korea, and Mother sees me, she will scold me.

Yesterday, Good Man and I went to Great Falls National Park for a very short hike. I was practicing for my upcoming trip. “How do I say this?” I switched to Korean, “‘Mother, I am 30 years old. If I want to eat a Dweji Bar, I will eat a Dweji Bar.'”

Good Man shook his head quickly, “No, you can’t say that. Do you want to fight? Do you want to die? No, no, that is not the way to make good relationship.”
