Mom Reacts to Kim Jong-il’s Death and His Son’s Rise to Power

Jan 11

Recently I called Mom to wish her a happy new year. During our call, I brought up North Korean leader Kim Jong-il’s death to see what she thought about it.

Me: “What do you think about Kim Jong-il dying?”

Mom: “Good. I happy.”

Me: “Yeah?”

Mom: “Yeah, he terrible. Good that he’s dead.”

Me: “What do you think’s going to happen to North Korea now?”

Mom: “His son in charge now.”

Me: “Yeah, Kim Jong-un.”

Mom, disgusted: “His son’s smart aleck. He think he’s tough, he knows it all, he think he got power.”

Me, laughing: “What?”

Mom, defiant: “I could kick his ass.”

Me, laughing even harder: “WHAT?!”

Watch out, Kim Jong-un, my mom wants to beat you up.

Mom: “Smart mouth. He think he knows it all. He think he’s smarter than his father. Without experience, he try to be hot shot. South Korea afraid he’s gonna do something just for the heck of it, young kid’s mind. You know how you kids do when you younger.”

Me: “I never thought to start a war with another country!”

Mom, scowling: “You know what I mean.”
