Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): hi
dnlgray@hotmail.com: what's up
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): nothing much, you?
dnlgray@hotmail.com: Just home for a couple of minutes. I'm just got back from teaching
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): busy
dnlgray@hotmail.com: a little....I go to teach teach doctors in the afternoon
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): your schedule is getting tough
dnlgray@hotmail.com: a little, but it's not bad. They're nice people. They're psychatrists
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): ok
dnlgray@hotmail.com: and they don't think I'm crazy
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): who think you are crazy??
dnlgray@hotmail.com: my students
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): oh... never mind. they think all the teachers are crazy
dnlgray@hotmail.com: yeah, but I've fooled the psychatrists
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): how?
dnlgray@hotmail.com: just kidding. I'm not that crazy
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): hehe... not yet
dnlgray@hotmail.com: Except I climbed up Namsam on Sunday t night
dnlgray@hotmail.com: at night
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): oh... don't worry i won't tell it to your students or the dr.s
dnlgray@hotmail.com: thanks. They would lock me up I think for that
dnlgray@hotmail.com: it wasn't one of my wisest moments.
dnlgray@hotmail.com: I almost fell a couple of times
dnlgray@hotmail.com: but it was adventurous
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com):
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): yeah...sth ppl don't do often
dnlgray@hotmail.com: I wasn't really going to
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): you just found yourself in the mt.?
dnlgray@hotmail.com: I walked from Sunggun Dong to Namsam mountain because I wanted to go eat sambap bibimbap at a restaurant near Hwarang Education Center
dnlgray@hotmail.com: and then I decided to climb the mountain at 4pm.
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): ok..and?
dnlgray@hotmail.com: I got to the top at around 5 or so I hung out at the top of the mountain to 5
:30
dnlgray@hotmail.com: and instead of turning around and coming back down the same way I came up, I decided I wanted to see the other side of the mountain
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): not bad
dnlgray@hotmail.com: so I went down the other side of the mountain
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): that's usual...looking for another route
dnlgray@hotmail.com: it gets better
dnlgray@hotmail.com: so after I got to the bottom of the other side, I realized that I was in the middle of no where and I was completely lost.
dnlgray@hotmail.com: So...
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): so...?
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): did you call 119?
dnlgray@hotmail.com: I tried to walk on the highway, but the road was really narrow and cars were whipping around on it, so I turned around and decided I would go back the way I came.
dnlgray@hotmail.com: I decided to go back up the mountain at like 7pm.
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com):
dnlgray@hotmail.com: Not smart huh?
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): not so smart.... but you learned sth, huh?
dnlgray@hotmail.com: wait there's more
dnlgray@hotmail.com: so I climbed to the top of the mountain and then I decided that I would just sleep on top of the mountain.
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): haha really?
dnlgray@hotmail.com: so I stayed there till like 10pm
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com):
dnlgray@hotmail.com: but it was really, really cold
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): wasn't it cold??
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): yeah....
dnlgray@hotmail.com: REALLY COLD
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): definetely
dnlgray@hotmail.com: so...I decided to go to the buddhist temple and ask the monk for a room for the night
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): wow!
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): what temple?
dnlgray@hotmail.com: but of course, I almost died a couple times going down from the top
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): it's getting more exciting
dnlgray@hotmail.com: yeah, there is a temple near the top of the mountain
dnlgray@hotmail.com: hahaha
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): did you get to the temple?
dnlgray@hotmail.com: so I went there and there was only one monk there and she was watching TV
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): haha and did you ask...?
dnlgray@hotmail.com: I asked her if I could stay, but she said no and decided to give me
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): just no?!
dnlgray@hotmail.com: a flashlight and she told me shinnae was that way and pointed to the bottom of the mountain
dnlgray@hotmail.com: She gave me water too
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): oh... light and water... mercy!
dnlgray@hotmail.com: yep, she just said no. So then I started down the mountain in the dark, with only a flashlight
dnlgray@hotmail.com: I know I thought monks were supposed to be generous or something
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): oh.... you must be very scared
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): she is a fake one i guess
dnlgray@hotmail.com: I was...because I kept thinking that a bear or wolf would eat me
dnlgray@hotmail.com: I guess
dnlgray@hotmail.com: Oh, have you seen Blair Witch Project?
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): haha... don't you like animals?
dnlgray@hotmail.com: I don't like animals with teech
dnlgray@hotmail.com: teeth
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): no no no horror movie
dnlgray@hotmail.com: yeah, so I was really scared because I thought like some ancient Korean king was going to attack me
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): yeah... facing animals in Mt at night isn't so pretty
dnlgray@hotmail.com: eat my soul or something
dnlgray@hotmail.com: of course not...
dnlgray@hotmail.com: ARE YOU CRAZY!!!
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): haha... eat your soul... i like that sentence
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): sorry go on..
dnlgray@hotmail.com: I don't think a dead shilla king would want to eat my finger
dnlgray@hotmail.com: hahaha
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): or toes
dnlgray@hotmail.com: so anyway...true
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): i hope they are vegeterians
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): how did you get the way back down?
dnlgray@hotmail.com: I don't think a soul is really a meat product
dnlgray@hotmail.com: If you stopped interrupting I would tell you
dnlgray@hotmail.com:
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): for your fingers and toes
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): ok ok... go ahead!
dnlgray@hotmail.com: So I slowly climbed down the mountain and I sang happy songs to keep my mind off of ghosts and I almost got to the bottom, but for some reason I got lost in a river bed filled with rocks
dnlgray@hotmail.com: It took me a while to find my way out and I stepped in water a couple of times
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): oh!
dnlgray@hotmail.com: so after that I finally made it out of the mountain and I was so happy
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): congrats!
dnlgray@hotmail.com: You have no idea how happy I was to see an electric light or even cars
dnlgray@hotmail.com: It was great...so after that I had to walk all the way to the main road where like Anapji and stuff were
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): did you shout like "i'm the king of the world!!"?
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): wow...it was a long journey
dnlgray@hotmail.com: but before that I was so thirsty so I drank three cups of coffee from a coffee machine
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): haha
dnlgray@hotmail.com: no...but I was so happy, that I decided that I would help out the mountain by picking up litter I found on the trail
dnlgray@hotmail.com: So I picked up bits of paper and other stuff to throw away later
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): were there any dancers in Anapji to celebrate your back?
dnlgray@hotmail.com: No...there should have been
dnlgray@hotmail.com: so...then I walked all the way to the road and magically there was a Taxi waiting at the intersection so he took me home
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): anyway, i'm glad you made it ....finally!
dnlgray@hotmail.com: thanks...it was quite an adventure.
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): if you met an animal on the way back down, it could be more adventure
dnlgray@hotmail.com: I think I should add that in a story I write
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): plz... but what animal?
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): what about wild cats? (H)
dnlgray@hotmail.com: I saw a wild cat
dnlgray@hotmail.com: it was fat and missing it's tail
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): not scary?
dnlgray@hotmail.com: not really
dnlgray@hotmail.com: I was thinking like an ostrich
dnlgray@hotmail.com: that would be scary!
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): hehe...
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): and say old shilla kings were riding ostriches
dnlgray@hotmail.com: now you're on to something
dnlgray@hotmail.com: I should write this
Maybe in May (jihee_k@hotmail.com): what?!
