My Family Has Got Seoul

| Related | March 4, 2015

(My mom and I are driving home from visiting my paternal cousins. I’m somewhere around seven at the time.)

Mom: “Well your cousins were adopted just before you were born so…”

Me: *in complete, sincere shock* “They’re ADOPTED!?”

Mom: “… [My Name], they’re KOREAN.”

(My family is very, very white. To this day my mom insists that it was just cute that I never thought anything of it.)
