I am at the hospital taking my dad to an eye specialist and as I wait…wait…
I am reading a translated Chinese novel called My Mr. Ostrich by Han Yan and crying is hard not to.
I am a cry baby and me without crying is an alien using my body as a host.
Anyway. Wiping my tears in what I think is a strategic way, wondering if they see I am crying.
I cry a lot in movies and books. My family just shake their head because I get really emotional depending on how deep it is.
This My Mr. Ostrich. Is a story about an impaired guy and his love Ms. Crab.
A book about how him having no arms, his journey with her always at his side from a young age , The things he went through. A true Cinderella story of his despite his disability. He was loved thoroughly by his Ms. Crab.
Their story reminds me of a line I read in the Outlander novel.
When Jamie Fraser said
“Lord you gave me a rare woman and God I loved her well…”

They make me happy because the Chinese novels are truly fantastic. They have me crying and laughing a lot. Some had me wishing I never read it. One I cried in the bathroom.I don’t think i have ever been so heartbroken by something else after Titanic.
