Jun is my conscience. I have always wanted to say that. LOL. You know how sometimes you get into these contemplative moods and start asking yourself questions like, what is the meaning of life, and then venture out to ask random friends who give such retarded answers that you regret having asked them and even wonder why you know them? Well Jun is NOT one of those people.
He is one of the most thought-provoking, well-read, and reflective men (note the oxymoron) I've ever known whose answers are ALWAYS right on target. Now how many people do you know like that?! I do not know anyone else like him. I have, on countless occasions, turned to him with some of the most challenging questions about life, career, family, and friends, and he has never once failed me in his answers, although hmm.... this one incident left me wanting to hurt him.
If I remember correctly, I was going through some rather challenging moments with a guy I used to be interested in, and within a two-hour period I wrote Jun an email going OFF about how angry I was and then another email telling him to ignore my first email and that I was just FINE. Jun always writes back immediately with a thoughtful take on what might be going on in my head, but this time, he wrote:
"Christine, how would you describe your relationship with your father?"
So I took the time to delve deep into my psyche and to go over the finer details of my lifelong relationship with my father. At the end of my long drawn out explanation of why I think I am the way I am, I asked him why he wanted to know. His answer? "Oh. No particular reason. I just wanted to see what you would say and thank God I'm not within range for you to HIT ME."
Only Jun can get away with something like that. He doesn't live in Taipei any more but I email with him the most, and visit him whenever I can. I definitely miss having him around. Life hasn't been the same without him.
