|Taka and I 25 years ago|
We all felt easy and free talking with each other. Park mentioned my husband. Patrick said:
- "Oh, yes, Mr. Toyoda is a very special guy!"
- "Really?" - I replied -
-"Why do you say that?"
- "Because he accepted Rev. Moon's match for him: you!"
Now, I love to have guests in my house and always give them the benefit of a doubt, but here was a guy who came here for the first time and he was saying that I was lucky because Taka accepted me as his wife. I wouldn't argue with that: I am lucky because, despite all the problems, we are still together and doing better than before. But Patrick was saying something else.
- "What do you mean by that?" - my inquiry.
- '"Well, you know...."
- "No, I don't know!"
With every word I became more and more sure that he was referring to my weight. I wanted to tell him that when we were matched, I was much lighter and quite beautiful.

I only said:
- "No, I don't know what you mean!"'
