You invited me to dim sum months ago, and I haven't forgotten how you watched me to make sure I tried everything and watched even closer to make sure I left nothing to show for it except for an empty plate. I don't think you thought I'd like the chicken feet, but I did. I had begged for turnip cakes in the beginning, but by the time they arrived I was re-evaluating my excitement as things were getting harder and harder to swallow and I was chewing on flaky fried things as if they had the consistency of glutinous rice. There was really quite a bit of food.
That was the place your family went every Sunday and feasted in magnificence. That was the place you took us - me and three white guys, which should have been embarassing for all of us but we redeemed ourselves in empty plates. You took us where you ate your way through Sunday, inviting the outsiders in, where we plowed through your favorites and familial memories because we knew we'd never come back unless you brought us again.
