1. I had a haircut last weekend and somebody was being nice by saying “Barton, nice haircut~”. I made my courteous gesture and said, “Thanks. To be honest, I grew the hair all by myself~”.
2. One year ago in Columbus OH, again I had a haircut. Keith was being nice by saying “Hey, you have a haircut. It looks nice.” “No, it looks like you, but it doesn’t look nice…” I was joking with him.
3. On the Independence Day, Gina, Chelsea, Zeke, Kalyahs and I went to see the fireworks. On our way back Gina described someone who is really uncool by saying, “He is such a disgusting weasel fucker….”
4. Yesterday my professor came to the office and discussed about the research with Mohsen, my officemate who followed the professor’s words exactly but did not try something new for the research.
The professor commented like, “Mohsen, you are exactly the opposite with Mingwu (my Chinese name). You don’t take any freedom in your research, but Mingwu takes too much liberty in his (indicating every so often I don’t really like following his words, but do the research in the way that I believed was right. )
I have to interrupt their conversation and pretend to apologize sincerely, “I am sorry professor. I am too self-motivated…”
