Korean Camp

If you had a secret window into my life right now, you'd find me holed up in a sketchy Howard Johnson watching Keeping up with the Kardashians.

I'm just putting it out there - I like it.

The K's, not the HOJO.

But don't judge too harshly, because this is only my first-ever episode. There's time for my tune to change. I'll keep you posted.

I just dropped my dude off at Korean Culture Camp. I asked him on the way here last night what he was most excited about. Without hesitating, he said, "For the first time ever, I'll fit in."

(Go ahead, grab a tissue.)

He was a little nervous, but they wrangled all of the 2nd and 3rd graders together and most of them were boys. Man, it pinched my heart up. I hope he lets go and has some big-time, rowdy-boy fun. I hope this fills a little bit of the ache I know exists in there.

If you think of it, say a little prayer for him. It might not seem like the hugest deal, but looks can be deceiving.

Meanwhile, I have a stack of books (this, this, this, this), mags and a fountain Coke at 10 in the morning. I'm a woman of leisure in the HOJO.

That came out wrong.

At noon I'll be heading back to camp to dine on rice and noodles with my main squeeze. We have big plans to tool around the MSU campus this evening and find some Asian food for dinner. We're just gonna go ahead and geek out on all-things-Asian.

I'm so lucky to get this time with C-ster. So proud of my brave boy.
