I often wonder to myself .. as I gaze daily directly into the faces of literally thousands upon thousands of countless non-smiling non-blinking absolutely inscrutable expressionless Asian eyes .. the answer to the below unanswerable question :
What does the non-smiling non-blinking absolutely inscrutable expressionless Asian male do when he looks directly into the eyes of his very own non-smiling non-blinking absolutely inscrutable expressionless Asian female when ‘things’ are not going well between the two of them?
Do they sit and live silently for something like ten (10) years? Neither ‘blinking’. Then what happens when the ten (10) year mark is reached?
One Asian male friend of mine simply said to me .. “Cap we seldom have problems we deal with forthright and directly. It is all tight within the family! But I sure KNOW when my non-smiling non-blinking absolutely inscrutable expressionless Asian wife is upset with me!”
Daily my mission is to crack this inscrutable expression of one Asian stranger and .. once in awhile .. from time to time .. it happens and one of them cannot help but to smile back at me (it is usually a female) as she catches herself and maybe bites her cheek. It makes my day and they become friends IF I have contact with them.
Below is Ruby who almost doesn’t count but Ruby too can be pretty inscrutable herself! I wore poor Ruby down after I showered her with wave after wave of thanks and gratitude for the assistance she gave me and still does. Ruby is my key go-to-friend when I need to find things here!
Ruby on the telephone visiting with Patti in Anchorage. Ruby is family now.
When it is a male and I am in close proximity I give him a vigorous high-five hand slap and feel I have gained a friend for life! When this happens in my neighborhood and I see him daily we have established a real bond of sorts.
