Usage examples of "yun".

Her dad, Earl, was retiring and quiet like her grandparents, Yeh Yeh and Yun Yun, but her Auntie Geraldine and Uncle Elmore could always be counted on for entertainment.

Also, Yun Yun could always be depended on to spice up any occasion with a handful of well-timed, persnickety barbs, and Lindsey wondered which innocent bystanders would be stung this evening.

Lindsey heard a commotion in the living room, which meant that Yun Yun must have arrived.

As she looked over at Yun Yun now, she saw that her grandmother was meticulously trimming Kleenex squares in half with a pocket-sized pair of scissors, then daintily refolding and stashing the tissues up her sleeve for later use.

Lindsey that Yun Yun had probably never had a day of frivolity in her life.

Lindsey had tried to reach out to Yun Yun in the past, but had always struck out.

Even though Yun Yun could speak passable English, she usually spoke Chinese around her grandchildren to passive-aggressively punish them all for not learning Chinese.

All the while, Yun Yun would gesture and point at Lindsey as if she were a flea-bitten chihuahua in the corner.

Yun Yun was unsmiling with a sour expression carved into her face as if she was actually pondering where all the terrible noise was coming from.

A few stragglers, including Lindsey, joined in on the last lines, but by the end of the song Yun Yun seemed more pouty than delighted.

When they were done, Lindsey watched Yun Yun dab whipped cream onto her tongue with a plastic fork.

All this experience with older, upper-crust white ladies was doing nothing to help her understand one older Chinese lady in particular, namely, Yun Yun.

In theory, she thought it was great that Chinese families were tightly knit and valued togetherness, but in reality she dreaded spending her Saturday unloading cases of Depends and Metamucil, having to make sure she kept a tight lid on her casual swearing for fear that Yun Yun might catch her uttering the f-word and administer a swift knuckle to her head.

Every time she talked to Yun Yun she felt like Charlie Brown trying to kick a football.

Yun Yun could prove her thorns were sharp, and often did, with caustic comments that stung worse than any pricked finger.
