I met Kat the first week I moved to Korea.
2 Martini's in hand I walked to the park to find a friend.
It didn't take long as Kat was sitting on a park bench pretending to watching her kids while she was secretly watching me out of the corner of her eye to see where I where I was going with that 2nd martini.
Today I was more than happy to plan a little birthday outing for her.
"SO.....when was the last time you sat in a back alley in the middle of Insadong - Seoul, South Korea while someone played Happy Birthday to you on an accordion while everyone within ear shot sang happy birthday in multiple languages, while you ate dinner outside over a 50 gallon barrel with hot coals burning by your feet for heat and you checked your coat in a trash bag?"
In the future you ever ask her, she will have a date. ;)
Happy Birthday Kat!
I cherish our friendship.
