Put down
Posted: 8/10/2008 4:48:15 PM
Immigrated to Canada for 7 years, I still struggle with English. To keep conversation going, sometime I just guess when I don’t understand.

One day, my dog and I meet Jack with his dog Lucy only.
“Where is Mark?” I asked. Mark is his another dog.
“I put him down, because he bit my friend’s kid.” Jack told me.
"Put him down?" I started guessing.

A week later, we meet again. I still have not seen Mark.
So I asked: “ you still put Mark down?”

Rich & Sick (( or )) Poor & Healthy
Posted: 5/13/2007 5:33:43 PM
Rich or poor is really a question of what you want and what you've got. If you don't want anything(theoretically), then you are not poor even you don't have anything.

Therefore the rich can be sad, the poor can be happy.

You might lose this time, but you always have chances to shuffle the cards for next round.

Rich & Sick (( or )) Poor & Healthy
Posted: 5/13/2007 7:26:10 AM
First of all, I would not treat my healthy for anything theoretically.
But the world is a BIG mall. Everyone has to treat something they have for something they don't have and want to have. If you got a good deal, you become rich. Or you don't have good products, or don't know how to sell for a good price, you end up being poor(like me :))
And being poor is really not a fun. The happiness is all about freedom.
No money~= no freedom ~= no happiness
So practically I still treat part of my healthy for a little wealthy.
Until I am rich enough, I don't see a choice.

Why did he hurt me?
Posted: 5/6/2007 7:10:05 AM
Maybe he thinks he is not good enough for you. Or maybe he has to leave for some reasons so that you will not be hurt very badly. Anyway, don‘t cry because it is over, smile because it happened. After all, you met him and enjoyed the time you spent together, right?

Some birthday!
Posted: 5/5/2007 12:32:14 PM
Last week was my birthday and I didn’t feel very well waking up on
that morning. I went downstairs for breakfast hoping my wife would
be pleasant and say, "Happy Birthday!", and possibly have a small
present for me.

As it turned out, she barely said good morning, let alone "Happy
Birthday." I thought...
Well, that’s marriage for you, but the kids....They will remember.

My kids came bounding down stairs to breakfast and didn’t say a word.
So when I left for the office, I felt pretty low and somewhat

As I walked into my office, my secretary Jane said, "Good Morning
Boss, and by the way Happy Birthday!" It felt a little better that at
least someone had remembered. I worked until one o’clock, when Jane
knocked on my door and said, "You know, It’s such a beautiful day
outside, and it is your Birthday, what do you say we go out to lunch,
just you and me."

I said, "Thanks, Jane, that’s the greatest thing I’ve heard all day.
Let’s go!"

We went to lunch. But we didn’t go where we normally would go. She
chose instead at a quite bistro with a private table. We had two
martinis each and I enjoyed the meal tremendously.

On the way back to the office, Jane said, "You know, It’s such a
beautiful day...We don’t need to go straight back to the office, do
we ?"

I responded, "I guess not. What do you have in mind ?"

She said, "Let’s drop by my apartment, it’s just around the corner."

After arriving at her apartment, Jane turned to me and said,"Boss, if
you don’t mind,
I’m going to step into the bedroom for just a moment. I’ll be right

"Ok." I nervously replied.

She went into the bedroom and, after a couple of minutes, she came
out carrying a huge birthday cake. Followed by my wife, my kids, and
dozens of my friends and co-workers, all singing "Happy Birthday".

And I just sat there...

On the couch...
