One evening, my daughter and I were watching TV in the living room and my husband was surfing the Internet in the study. I felt a little thirsty but didn’t want to move, so I said, “Lao gong [husband, dear], go grab a coke for me.” My husband came out of the study, got me a coke, and then he went back to the study. At this time, our five-year-old daughter also called out, “Daddy, I want one too.” My husband replied impatiently, “Get it yourself!” My daughter thought for a moment, and then called out again, “Lao gong, I want one too.”

I was watching a TV variety show. The host asked a cute little boy who just sang “Song of Good Fellows” [by Liu Huan, see below]: “Who is your favorite character in Water Margin?” Answer: Wu Song! The host asked, “Why? Is it because Wu Song is the bravest one?” Before he could finish, the cute little boy answered in a HLL way, “Because he has a beautiful sister-in-law!” Dumbfounded.

What’s mine looks like me.”
