上次上英语课,课间休息,俺瞅见一美国老太太进到了教室,教室隔壁是个厨房,她坐在中间,两个男的也跟了进来,三人就开始忙活着做饭。
俺就凑前打招呼:HI,HOW ARE YOU DOING?
那个老太满脸笑容:GOOD AND YOURSELF?
俺见这个老太和蔼可亲,就聊了起来。她说她很敬重中国人!
俺: WHY?
您猜猜她说什么???

她说她很敬重中国人因为中国人知道尊敬老人!!这一点给人印象特深刻!俺早上和美国人共敬咖啡时他们也说到这一点!
今天早上的英语课俺不讲英语900句了,要介绍缅因州,明天早上8点我们就要远航了!昨天早上JOHN给俺一个精美画册:缅因州简介,俺很感动:他老人家想得很周到!俺问他:DOKIN DONUTS 的咖啡好喝还是STARBUCKS 的咖啡好喝?他说他选择STARTBUCKS 但是他ENJOY OUR COMPANY HERE,他很喜欢和我们这一群人(十几个)在一起。俺也有同感!

俺随机坐到了中间,开始和邻座的美国人打招呼:GOOD MORNING!MY NAME IS CHARLIE。 GOOD MORNING, MY NAME IS MARY, AND THIS IS MY MOTHER, JINI。GOOD MORNING, MY NAME IS TOM, AND THIS IS MY WIFE, SANDY。
