해결책 충격 - An Explanation

Apologies for the difficulty of my previous entry. I'll explain.

I was having problems, and I went to a guru's house to explain them.

"I had a big problem, which was causing a wide variety of little problems and concerns. Then I solved the big problem, and the little problems became irrelevent without ever being solved. I feel like I've got an itch on a phantom limb that I just can't scratch. How can I solve a meaningless problem?"

Perhaps I'd been worried about my coworkers' opinions of me, and watching eveyr action, and then just got offered a new job at a new company. Or perhaps I was having tension with an old roommate, and worried about the right way to confront the roommate, when suddenly they moved. Or maybe I was busy counting the number of tranquilizer darts I had left, compared to the number of giant carnivorous squids in the same tank as me, when I found myself lifted up to dry land. I really don't remember all that well.

In any case, it's a buildup of tension that remains even after the source of tension is resolved.

I don't know what kind of answer I was expecting from the guru, but this is what I got:

"Ask, and I shall provide. I've placed a curse on you, and you will be unable to use the English language from this point forward. You may now only communicate in Korean. You need no longer be troubled by solved problems."

I don't even know a lick of Korean; I had to use a translator program.
