2 hours later, he returns all sweaty and smelly. Showers are mandatory. Then back on vent, the gang will ask "What was the score?" .. to which he will answer, "We lost 2 - 11".
But the boy loves his soccer. Here's an action shot for all you doubters (one of two games I actually attended). He's in the orange jersey #28 ... just covering the crap out of the guy in blue.
Now, I love my boy and he has mad skillz but let me say something about his league. It's not like watching the World Cup. BUT it is entertaining in it's own way.
I have a little nephew and niece whom I have yet to meet. Work or something has always gotten in the way of visiting and they're little people now. I missed their baby stage completely. Which might explain why I latched on to Eric and Jessica's baby Quin. Although, in all fairness to Quin, that kid's facial makeup is freaking adorable.
This is Nathaniel. He's pretty cute as well. Odd since my brother is so homely looking.
In Korea, after the first 100 days of a baby's life, there's a big celebration. Probably because the infant mortality rate was so high back in the "olden days". Hmm. That sounds right. I could call my mom and verify but then I'd have to listen to a long list of "Why don't you come up and visit anymore?" type questions. [ed. Okay, I googled this and I am indeed correct].
So, at the child's 100th day celebration, tons of people turn out, loads of food and gifts... and the kids are dressed in traditional Korean garb. This is the male version:
Pretty dorky. Actually, if the boy and I had gotten married in a traditional Korean ceremony, he would have worn something similar. Minus the little black hood. The hood is only worn by single men. And if you wear the hood backwards, it means you're gangsta cool or a"gangpeh".
This is what the traditional Korean wedding ceremony clothing looks like. How hot would my boy look in this?
It's always been a dream of my mom to host an official post-wedding party back in Toronto in front of all her friends and family (we did the Justice of the Peace thing back in 2000). Even though we've been married for over 6 years, she still talks about this... talking about what color would look best on the boy, what color I would like etc.
I suggested pale pink for the boy. *grin* My dress? I want black (of course), strewn with tiny, tiny white flower blossoms all over the bottom and trailing gently up. Mom says red needs to be in there though since it's a good luck color.
One day, one day. I made her a promise.
