The owners of 99 Chicken recognized us last night when we visited. I shouldn't be so shocked, since we've been there plenty of times. The ajuma seated us, and she said "1 #1, right?" The ajushi asked, "You haven't been here a long time!" They have new menus -- the number of selections has been reduced, and the prices have gone up slightly, but it's still worthy of patronage.
How many of us realize our poverty when we do not have this sort of familiarity (and much more) with others in our community?
