I called my grandmother & father yesterday. After I left from my family, I recognized how important they are to me.
But my family is quite strange I think.
I have older sister. She is married and has one son. She got married and gave him birth last year. And guess what? I knew that the fact she got married after she had got married. And I knew that the fact I became uncle after my nephew had been born.
NONE of my family member told me ANYTHING about her marriage and baby boy. I remember I couldnt even got suprised because I was just struck dumb with astonishment.
I havent ever called my father, sister, younger brother even once. They never called me either. So I only talk to them when I go back to Japan, which is once a year.
I dont know what to talk on the phone. And they dont know either. I can tell cuz they are my family. Since I reached puberty, I fogot how to talk to them eventually.
But now, after I left them for two years, I want to talk to them. I'm interested in them cuz I dont know much about them. What they think, their personality and all sorts of things are very new and fresh to me!!
