Reason to buy flowers
At Jean-Coutu, a guy was ready to pay a bunch of flowers. The cashier smiled and asked:" What did you do wrong to your girlfriend?"

Did I teach too much?
I am the only Chinese in my company and I have tried hard to market China and Chinese culture to my colleagues at work. Seems my effort is paying off. Pretty often, I hear a voice in Chinese: “ hey 工作! (Work !)” the other one says:” 我是老板! 安静! （I am the boss, be quiet! )” when someone sneezes, you will hear “ 上帝保佑！” (God bless you!) and of course “ 谢谢！“ (thank you!) “ 不客气！” (You are welcome) everywhere.
Today one of my colleagues was wearing a mini-skirt and came over, so I greeted her:” What’s up sexy?” she started to pose and shake her legs. Her legs were far from firm…I would say.:P Apparently she knew that too, so she said sadly, “ look at them…” I agreed with sympathy, “ yes sweetie you need some exercises.” Then unexpected, I heard her: “ 闭嘴！(Shut up!)’ I swear that was the most standard Chinese I have ever heard from her.

Everything is French!
I will be leaving for Quebec City for a French immersion program for 2 months soooooooooooon.
I told my boss:” I will be reading French books, listening to French music, watching French movies and eating French fries! “

The unique name card
I told Vivian that I added a new category “ Quote of the day” in my blog and she said :” Why don’t you add “ Humor of the day” or sth like that as well? “. I thought it was a good idea so I would start with my first “Laugh of the day” story.
He was my neighbour. I saw him almost everyday in the bus. We always said good morning to each other, more like doorway friends. Later we sat together sometimes and we started to talk. He was very knowledgeable and we always engaged a very good conversation. We talked about each other’s life, work, our parents, his kids…everything, like old friends. This morning he said:” It is so beautiful now, you should come to visit some time and to meet my wife and kids!” Then we realized that we have never given each other contact information yet. I was searching for my name card but did not find any, then I was surprised by what I saw: He tore off one of his checks and gave it to me:” You will find all the information there…” “ OMG, this is the most unique name card I have ever got…” We both laughed. “ By the way,” I asked, “ Can you sign it, please?”
