What I Said. What She Heard.

What I said to my 17-year-old step-daughter (in my best broken Thai):

“You don’t need to go for every guy that smiles at you. You should have more confidence in yourself. You’re pretty. You’re going to have plenty guys interested in you. You don’t need to settle for some immature guy who is going to be jealous all the time. You should hold out for a guy who will treat you well.”

What she heard:

“Blah, blah, blah, blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. You’re pretty. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah.”
