1. I took the pleasure of watching the opera of Les Miserables last Sunday. At the ticket box, I asked the lady if there is any student ticket left. She told me like, “All student tickets are sold out, but there is one free ticket. Would you like to take it?…” So I failed to get a student ticket for money, but was able to get a ticket for free… The logic is totally over my head…
2. Mohsen and Jiankun are my officemates. We took the course of Image Processing this semester. For midterm exam Mohsen scored 9/10 and I scored 9.5/10, but Jiankun scored only 7/10. Last Thursday the course’s professor said there will be no final exam, so Jiankun has no chance to get a perfect score in final exam for a good final grade for this course. He was not happy and complained about it. Mohsen comforted him like, “That’s OK.”
“…for us.” I completed his sentence.
3. Neither of my parents can speak English. I called them the other day, when my dad answered the phone and messed up with me by saying “Hello” literally in English. I was so stunned that I thought I dialed the wrong number and hung up the phone immediately. Nice shot for my dad…
4.1 I went to use the restroom on the third floor of Engineering Building and met two professors from Chemical Engineering were carrying some serious academic discussion right in the restroom… I was totally impressed.
4.2 I gossiped the above professors with Hao Wen and Nate, two students from Chemical Engineering. Nate made a comment like, “Maybe they were discussing the input and output of the experiment.”
“Oh,” I followed up by mocking the professors with the indication of restroom’s function like “I am not sure about the input, but I definitely know what the output is…”
