It is 5 a.m. and I am writing in semi-darkness. Bao is still asleep and has been so since 5 yesterday. Today is the day. Am trying not to have too big of an expectation regarding the much anticipated first meeting of Bao and Jin. Yesterday at the airport while waiting for flights/bags/etc., I tried to talk to Bao about getting a brother. I asked him what he will do when he sees him. I said that Jin is waiting for Bao. Bao said "Hit Jin", swatting at the air in front of him. Then I asked him what he will say when he sees him, and he said "Sorry" which means that he is still planning on the hitting. Then someone else asked Bao about getting a brother, and he said "Go away Jin" and "Go away." Therefore, based upon this information, I have to seriously adjust my fantasy of them running into each others arms as in slow motion in movies as if they are, well, long lost brothers. At this point, I will just be happy if there is no physical assault. In just 4.5 hours, we will get Jin.
