The restaurant was crowded, but not many people were paying attention to what we were doing. The behavior I decided to break was dipping my fingers in the container caramel was in and then proceeded lick my fingers after doing so. I choose to break this social norm because one, the caramel sauce was really good, and two I was testing to see if my mother would say anything: normally on my birthday she lets me get away with

One generally invites one’s friends to dinner, unless one is trying to get on the good side of enemies or employers.

After that incidents with my brother, another terrible event took place in my house after my mother moved to America. As a Hmong family that practiced Sherism, my family had this set up in the middle of the house that contained a few cups filled with rice and water as well as a Laos five dollar bill in the center. It was a sunny day and I made a mistake by allowing myself to go out and enjoyed the fun with everyone else. When I returned home, everyone was waiting for me at the dinner table.

Growing up I was always raised in a nice environment. Dinner at our kitchen table, trips to Reno, Six Flags to see the cute dolphins, we had a great bond between our family.

Conflicts arose between the culture I was engaged in at school and the culture that my family kept at home. I typically had gimbap, Korean seaweed rice rolls, while my friends ate ham and cheese sandwiches and chips for lunch and spoke about how much money the tooth fairy gave them the night before, a fantasy figure my parents did not know about. My friends would lightly poke fun at my peculiar lunch and it quickly made me feel like an outcast. Additionally, it was hard for me to find a place in school for the first couple of years, as I spoke poor english. It didn’t help that I only spoke Korean at home.
