I love Erin Z. She’s my Bangkok sister. We lived across the hall from each other on the fifth floor of Baan Bunrapa. I miss seeing her everyday.
Both of us are back in North America, adjusting to this awkward season. In a recent Skype conversation we bonded over being unemployed and single:
Me: Update me on life!
Erin: My life is “www.livingwithmyparents.wordpress.com.”
Me: Glad we can relate.
Erin: Do you know how embarrassing it is to meet guys?
Erin: ‘So what do you do?’ ‘I’m unemployed.’ ‘Where do you live?’ ‘With my parents.’
Erin: How are you liking your apartment?
Me: Well my roommate’s getting married so–
Erin: OMG! Your life is totally like 27 Dresses! (Not the first time she’s compared my life to the movie. Read about it here).
Me: YOU ARE SO CRUEL!!!
Erin: Everyone around you gets married!
Me: [Not pleased] Thanks Erin.
Erin: Seriously, out of all of my friends, you deserve it [marriage] the most.
Me: Aww [softened a little] …thanks Erin.
