if your parents offered you a nice condo overlooking the South China sea, keys to a little red car they call ‘Cooper’ and a club membership card that allowed you to choose from twenty-four pools, six tennis courts and many alleys on which to bowl?
What would you say if they told you they’d have contractors to have the place looking just the way you want it and that they’ll send over that five thousand dollar childhood piano of yers?
What would you say if mum said “Come home, get a good i-banking job, marry a doctor. A good Chinese doctor who will treat you like a princess. And plays the cello too.”?
“I love you,
but no thanks.
I’m really enjoying this dollar seventy-five Vietnamese sub right now.”
