Talking About Wonder Woman With My Mom

Me: Wonder Woman has everything I love in a movie: badass female lead, female director, and Chris Pine. And, Chris is basically eye candy! He’s only a side character. 👏

Mom: He’s…what do you call it? In Chinese we call him a 花瓶. Only for decoration! 😀

[ my mom called Chris Pine a “hua ping,” aka a flower vase 😂 ]
