A Time to Live and a Time to Die

Originally Dad planned to stay in Taiwan for only three or four years before going back, so he bought bamboo furniture because it was cheap and he could throw it away when he left. Later mom wanted to buy a sewing machine. It took so long to persuade him. Dad had tuberculosis... so he kept his bowl and chopsticks away from us. He kept a distance from us avoiding us when he coughed because he was afraid that we might be infected.
