Bridal Shower/Shinbu Pati

On May 8, with two days left until the wedding, the females all attended a bridal shower thrown by the Gracious Marla Longenecker. Now, taking my gender into account, and hence the fact that I was not present, my writings in this entry shall be succinct and perhaps untrue. I do apologize for that.

Since JooYeon's family didn't speak English at all, and Marla's women were equally unschooled in Korean, Marla designed the entire party to be based on body communication. From what I hear, JooYeon did do quite a bit of translation and served as a bridge, but many of the activities like food (or more appropriately, "gourmet feast fit for Roman goddesses") and games were non-verbal. Jusu (JooYeon's sister) lives in France, so she would have been able to communicate with the local French teacher a lot, but she had severe jetlag and was quite quiet. I'm not sure which language the Korean Barbie spoke, but she probably didn't talk much either. And yet, I have a feeling that the party was all but quiet...

Highlights included searching for tiny pins in a bowlful of rice while blindfolded and throwing a bridal bouquet around, a sport which I hear got quite competitive and perhaps even borderline violent (again, hearsay) until the Korean women realized that any prizes they won went directly to JooYeon. Another central game utilized bingo boards Marla had made which included pictures of JooYeon and me. A touching center of the evening was Jooyeon reading my sister Heather's card to her (since they bonded well during our month in Arizona).
