It’s weird weird weird to have my parents in Yantai. The adult-daughter (or is it adult/daughter?) thing is still new to me, and being the navigator, planner, translater and responsible party is just so weird.
I need new vocabulary to have my parents here. I don’t know how to say “diet Coke” because I never drink it. Sure, I can get coffees, iced tea, find bathrooms, take taxis, buy tickets, and generally get myself around, but it’s weird to have my parents relying on me, and my (extremely limited) Chinese skills. It’s also weird to explain strange methods to my parents, and try to make them comfortable in China.
And I need new vocabulary to continue this post without saying “weird, weird, weird”.
