The Wallflower Mom

Last night, I went to Mashitta (a Japanese and Korean food stall at Shopping Center here in UP) to buy my ever favorite Korean food, Kimchi fried rice. As I was waiting for my order, I can't help but to listen by the conversation of a family near me, consisting of a daughter, husband and wife. They were speaking in straight English. So here's the fragments of what I heard. Actually, only the mom talked..haha.

Mom: (addressing to her daughter) Let's watch The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
Daughter: *nods*
Mom: Starring Perccccyyyy (she sounded thrilled!)
The family started to get up to leave..
Mom: When I was your age, I was a wallflower. 

Cool mom. She's proud being a wallflower and she wants her daughter to see by watching the movie how she was like in her teenage years. When she said she was a wallflower, I wanted to interrupt her and announce that I'm a wallflower too. But then, I'm a wallflower, so never mind!haha

The Perks of Being a Wallflower, I want to watch that movie. I think I can relate. By how much? I think, a lot. Are you also going to watch the movie because you are one of us (wallflowers)? You can also watch it even if you are not so that you will know what it is like to be one. :)

I know there are people who say these things don't happen. I know these will all be stories someday. But right now, we are alive. And in this moment, I swear, we are infinite. - The Perks of Being a Wallflower
