Every morning, I walk Ah Lo to school, drop him off before heading to work. Though our walk is brief and most of the time we pump up our walks, I thoroughly enjoyed that 10 minutes of me-time with him. He does most of the talking throughout this time, usually on topics about his friends. This morning, I was surprised to hear him say, “why don’t you tell me about your work, since I do most of the talking all the time.” That’s Ah Lo, always so considerate, so charming, so sensitive towards others.

So I talked a little about my job and my daily routines. Deep down, I beamed with joy.
