My cousin invited us to go eat lunch with him and a group of friends after church. We all went to a rib place. Everyone from Oklahoma and Texas likes to eat in rib restaurants. It is just part of this part of the country. We were amused by the pig on the sign.
When one of my cousin’s friends realized I was ordering chicken friend steak and okra, she said, “Oh! You must be an Okie!” I had never been called an Okie before, but since my family is from Oklahoma for several generations back, I guess I must be an Okie. They were also laughing about me saying, “An Okie that speaks with a British accent!” Yes, I have spent all of my life traveling overseas and back. I have actually lived in eight countries in all and traveled to more places, but I guess you could call me “An Okie that speaks with a British accent.” I am a bit different.
I was happy because one of the women in the group has a son in the military in Seoul, S. Korea, and she told me he hasn’t been able to find the church in Seoul. I was able to give her all the information he needed to find the Hyochang church of Christ where they speak English in the afternoon worship. We even gave her phone numbers her son could call.
My daughter kept exclaiming in the restaurant that when her Korean husband comes, that he would really like this place. The food was good, and we had interesting conversation. 🙂
