1. Earl came back and stayed in town for just one day to see friends. I met him right after he got off the bus. We took a walk, chatted in one coffee house and joked that it was our second date. (Click here for more about our first date.)
When we were talking in the coffee house, Amy and Zoey came in and appeared surprised to see us. They kidded by saying they were on their date too. I was like, “Good. Come and join us. It will be a double date~”
2. I was cooking in the kitchen and saw Charlie putting butter on her bread. So I warned her like, “Charlie, butter gives you heart attack.” Charlie was like, “Don’t worry Barton. I like heart attack…”
3. I was taking a course from Rama the other day. He put down an equation on the board and asked us to name it. We had totally no idea and no clue what to say. So Rama gave us some encouragement, “So what do you think should be its name? Just give it a name!” I was like, “Jacob?…”
He smiled and said, “Alright, its name is deterministic autocorrelation or ‘Jacob’.. Mingwu must be on the second roll of Lost…” (Lost in an well known American TV show, in which Jacob is a major ghost like character.)
4. I came to Rama’s office for a meeting with him the other day. He needed to use the restroom the moment I got into his office, so he said to me, “Mingwu, protect this office. I will be right back.” I was like, “All right. But I am unarmed though…”
Watch out for the N7H9 bird flu in China!!!
