Chinese people, especially more traditional ones, are very particular with soup. My dad used to be one of those people, but he’s mellowed out a lot. Before, he used to demand that my mom boil him soup daily. Sometimes, if my mom made a big enough pot, we’d have leftover soup from the night before, but when we did, my dad would grumble. He’s less crotchety now, even though he’s older. You’d think he’d become more particular while growing older, but instead he’s definitely more relaxed.

My cold is still lingering and between my hacking cough and Mike being sick too, we’ve been having a lot of chicken soup. I fully believe the restorative qualities of chicken soup, especially if it has noodles in it. When I was sick as a kid, I used to live on Campbell’s Chicken Noodle soup, but now I find it much too salty.
