Dinner at Chloe's!

Last night, I was invited to one of my co-workers houses for dinner! She is a 2nd grade teacher at my school, so we get to co-teach together every Wednesday morning! I gave her the English name Chloe! :) Chloe, her husband, and her son live in a gorgeous high rise apartment a couple subway stops from my place! They live on the 18th floor!

When we arrived, I was met by her 22 month old son 동하 (Dong Ha) and her mother in law, who they pay to watch their son everyday while Chloe is at work.

After we had been there for a while, I noticed this HUGE tub of Cheese Balls. I pointed to it and said, "Wow, that's a huge thing of Cheese Balls" and Chloe laughed and said she had bought it at COSTCO for her son, but that they were too salty! She asked me if I liked them... When I answered "Yes!" she handed me the entire thing and said, "Great! You can have it!" I have NO IDEA what I'm going to do with all of these, but when a Korean offers you something, you NEVER turn it down!

Dong Ha was adorable! He was polite, well mannered, and smiled ALL THE TIME!

This was our dinner! Chloe ordered Pizza from Pizza Hut (my favorite), and we sat at her sons art table on the floor of her living room! :)

Love this kid!

At about 7:30pm, her husband arrived home! It's common for Korean men to come home VERY late! Most Korean women hate this... including Chloe! Korean marriages are VERY different from American marriages. Chloe and her husband were set up on a blind date, and neither of them really liked each other, but because they were in their early 30's, they both felt pressured to get married. Neither of them have ever actually loved each other. :(
On a happier note... We had an awesome time laughing, talking, and eating together! They offerred to have me over anytime I wanted, which I thought was extremely generous!! It's times like this that make staying another year extremely appealing!
