Oh, the irony of reflecting on how the Model Minority straight jacket has impacted every fucking aspect of my life and body, from the most public to the most intimate, while listening to Madama Butterfly very very loudly.
I am a dancer, choreographer, dramaturge and voice teacher. I speak 6 languages badly.
When my son was 6, he said
"My mom makes the best crème brulée.
She smells really nice.
She has a good sense of what to wear.
She likes to go to the beach with me.
She makes me feel safe when she's around me.
She's the best mom ever."
He is now 18 and makes better creme brulee than me.
I wish I was funny.
