Seoul’s weather today was weird. It would snow, stop, snow, stop, rain, stop, snow/rain, stop, rain, stop, HAIL, stop, and snooooow. But we haven’t accumulated much snow on the ground with its schizo goodness. I came home and told my mum that the weather was driving me crazy. The following amusing conversation occurred:
Me: What’s with this crazy weather?
Mum: 호랑이가 장가 간다 (The tiger’s going to get married — some random phrase my mum says. Not sure if it’s a real Korean saying or if it’s a Mum thing.).
Mum: The tiger’s getting married. That’s why the weather’s like this.
Me: *goes to Daddy* Mum says this weather’s is crazy because the tiger’s going on a wedding.
Daddy: What? *frowns in confusion*
Me: That’s what Mum says! She says the weather’s like this because the tiger’s going on a wedding here.
Daddy: Well, I hope it goes somewhere else!
This is a prime example of my parent’s humour and how two culture can actually come together and be FUNNY.
