THE GODSISTER

A few nights ago, I received a phone call from a familiar voice informing me that she ( the speaker) was in Hong Kong and would like to have dinner and a chat with her God brother (namely, yours truly).  

 

I can still remember stepping off the plane ontoHong Kongsoil and into an industry that comprises more cliques than an upper middle classUnited Statessuburban high-school.  You can imagine how hard it was to make friends close enough to be called your family in that type of environment.  Miraculously, I was blessed with several from the get-go and they are still my closest friends today.  Like my brothers Onimal and V.Dubb (both of whom need little introduction), Monica, was one of those friends close enough to be called family.

 

Having relocated to theCaliforniafor work in western productions, it has been some time since I last saw Monica and her call was a pleasant surprise.  However, I was a bit held up at the moment (as I have been as of late) and postponed our meeting to the next afternoon.

 

Before long, the next afternoon arrived and I learned that she was in town for some press conference concerning some TV 'reality' show about some 'amazing' race that she took part in.  Whatever the reason for her visit, the first thing I thought when I saw my old friend was, “huh? Is the water inCaliforniatainted with magic? Cause I’m certain you got taller…”  After much discussion, she has “apparently” always been 5’8”…

| 幾天前,我接到了來自一個熟悉聲音的電話,她(來電話的人)說人在香港,打算跟她的兄弟(就是 在下)一起吃晚餐和聊天。

我仍然記得走出飛機,踏上香港土地的那一刻,我進入了一個全新世界,那是有著比上中層美國郊區高中更多派系的領域。你能想象在那樣的環境中交到跟家人一樣親密友誼的朋友有多難。不可思議,我受到眷顧,從一開始就結識了幾個好朋友,他們至今仍是我的好友。比如好兄弟OnimalV.Dubb(需要簡單介紹一下他們),以及Monica,也是能被稱為家人的好朋友之一。

為了西部制作工作,她在加州重新安了家,我有段時間沒見Monica了,她的電話真是個驚喜,但當時我剛好有點事,於是把會面推遲到第二天下午。

漫長的等待之後,第二天下午終於到了,我得知她是來參加新聞發布會的,因為一部她參與的”超級”賽跑的電視”真人”秀。無論什麽原因到訪,我見到這位老友的第一反應是”啊?加州的水被施了魔法?你怎麽變高了…”一番爭執後,她很”顯然”一直都是5尺8寸高。

"you're not 5'8"...  I'm like almost 5'10", I mean, there's no way you're 5'8" all of a sudden..."

| “你不是5尺8寸…我差不多5尺10寸,我的意思是,你不可能突然变成5尺8寸高…”

ah... this "high above the forehead angle friendster/myspace/facebook type shot" (with the camera closer to my head) will give the impression of my true height of almost five feet and ten inches to the viewers...

| 啊…這張”在前額上方的friendster/myspace/facebook類型快照”(相機靠近我腦袋)將會告訴各位我真實的身高差不多是5尺10寸… | 啊…这张”在前额上方的friendster/myspace/facebook类型快照”(相机靠近我脑袋)将会告诉各位我真实的身高差不多是5尺10寸…

the funny thing was that she wasn't wearing heals... my next guess is that Hong Kong's water is tainted with an evil black magic that reduces peoples' height...

woo, what a beautiful member in your close family! Don't care so much about her height. It's just for shortening the distance between u. hahaha.

Well, the hat might be obscuring it but, being around 5’8” myself, I’d say the height difference is about right in the picture… I am, however, no judge of how tall she was before , though from my experience California has no magic height inducing water since the most recent time I lived there I got no taller and most of my friends there are shorter than me (though I could just attract short friends). Perhaps you’re right about the black magic…

You know, my brother gets that same expression of frustrated justice and suspicion when he comes home to discover that I, his little sister, am taller than he remembered. Seeing as neither of us have changed in height for the past seven years at the very least, I'm not quite sure how he always forgets that I'm not as short as I "should" be...

I just saw the first episode of that!!!! She's on the team of girls who care more about what they look like! Haha, I thought they were funny. Well, if the Kiwi gets out, I'll start rooting for her - no one tell me who wins or who gets out when! I love this show and the not-knowing is the best part!

Good times... Unfortunately, I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings, but I can confirm that there are no magical properties to induce vertical growth in the water. As a transplant from Oregon to Cali, I'm still regrettably at my 5'6" height. Btw, why in the world do you have an Oregon hat?!
