the worst year of my life

aha. suddenly it all makes sense:

kaitlin: how old are you?

kam: [pauses.] thirty-four.

kaitlin: thirty-four? that’s bad luck in chinese, isn’t it? three is okay, but four is a terrible number.

kam: it is. forty-four is considered the worst year of your life; thirty-four is second-worst.

i am currently 44. my beautiful partner f. 34.
