A New Girlfriend

The other night, when I finished teaching, I got a text message from Huyen: "You have a new girlfriend." When I got to my house I was greeted by this girl:

Yes, she looks a lot like my old girlfriend.

One of the things I like about Vietnam is the brutal honesty of people. The day after cutting her hair I asked Huyen what her coworkers thought. She said, "They thought it was okay but everyone said I look better with long hair." Well, I disagree. I really love the short look...although it officially means that ALL the important women in my life now have short haircuts: My mom, my sister, my grandmas and Huyen.
