With Chuseok come and past, the traditional bowing and ceremonial procedures reminded me I had to draw this one episode. It happened when we first arrived in Korea, almost 2 years ago, for Seollal (Lunar New Year). I had no clue what I was doing, nor did I expect Marcus’ family to ask me to bow to them. This is NOT a tradition where I come from, so I was out of place. Also, with my lack of balance and pronounced clumsiness, I couldn’t quite get the bow “right”. I blame my husband, as he simply told me to copy him and didn’t properly instruct me :P. In any case, I ended up sending his parents to the “figurative grave”. One can only hope I get it right this time around. hah! It still makes me giggle.
