Broken English

So a Korean woman sat with me for tea and said in her broken English:

“You so pretty, but so tired. Lose stress like this!”

And she grabbed her ears, squeezed them bottom and top and shook her head. The entire time she was smiling.

“You do.”

I did the same thing, instantly I had calmed down.

“Dark circles, make angry and two fingers push brows.”

So she made her angry face and put two fingers against both brows and pushed up.

“Clean skin. Make face O and squeeze cheeks up.”

She made her mouth into an “O”, pushed her cheeks in and pushed up.

“You so pretty when no stress.”

I smiled, it was the only repayment I could give her.
