1. Earl came back to town last weekend. I haven’t seen him for over 2 months, We hang out, caught up and had really nice conversations.
1.1 Earl and I took a long walk in the neighborhood and talked about everything. He always claimed himself as Steve Jobs and me as Steve Wozniak. Since Steve Jobs like to do the talking with people during long walks, this time Earl made another comment like, “See we are Jobs and Woz, and we are having our first walk. This is the start of our story. We can have our company sometime soon.” I can’t agree him totally and was therefore like, “Err, at least we have a story now…”
1.2 During the walk, Earl and I met Teddy, who asked us what we were doing. I kidded him like, “No interruption, please. We are having our first date!”
1.3 After we got back to the house, Earl told Zoey about our date and Zoey asked what we did for the date. Earl answered, “Oh, Barton bought me a coffee for the date.” Zoey was like, “He only bought you a coffee?” I was like, “Yeah, that’s what we Chinese do for a date.”
1.4 After Earl said hello to everybody in the house and got ready to take off, I saw him off the door and pretended it as a real date by making a phone gesture with one hand and putting it near my ear, saying, “Call me…”
2. We were having house dinner and discussing about people’s preference over buffet. Teddy was like, “I love buffet, because for buffet I don’t have to make any commitment to any food…” I was like, “Huh, good luck with your marriage, man.”
I went to Detroit’s shopping mall and outlet with friends last weekend and saw one store’s way of selling men’s boxers as follows
