Think before you speak

It cost me ¥1 to learn this proverb. I should have learned it before, but I hope it’s the last time I pay the tuition.

Rocky is the foreign teacher today in the English corner, and he is surely a shrewd one. “I can do two to three hundred push-ups in four minutes. You give me one Yuan and if I lose, I’ll return you two Yuan.” Considering his size, I said “I’m in!” and gave him one Yuan. He is 180 kilograms, how could he do 200 push-ups in 4 minutes? There it goes. He did three push-ups and then stand up, looking at us seriously, “You lose.” “Why?”

“I’ve told you to think before you speak, I just said I could do 2 to 300 push-ups in four minutes, so I win!”


“So these are mine!” Holding a handful of one-Yuan notes, he said happily. For some other guys also joined the game, one of them even bet two Yuan for it.

Well, there my money goes, but besides, I’ve learnt something more, such as “adidas” means “All Day I Dream About Sex”.

But I should have been more careful. I thought I was a boy of principle. I never gamble and I hate it. But today I couldn’t help betting with Rocky, why? Why I’m always lured by some minor benefit? I could never be too careful.

Mother’s Day: What I have done and What I should have done for my Mother

It’s Mother’s Day today. I’ve never celebrated Mother’s Day anyway. But, I think it’s time to express my gratitude and my deep feelings; and we shall always learn to express our feelings, gratitude, regret, etc.

I’m not going to ‘celebrate’ Mother’s Day though; instead, I don’t think Mother’s Day should only be celebrated on this particular day. In fact, I do think that everyday may be the same; and we should ‘celebrate’ Mother’s Day EVERYDAY!

Well, my mother has nothing in particular indeed; she is much like every the other mother in the world. She gave me my life; she taught me to walk, to speak, and to be a man with responsibility; she has been loving her son ever since I was born.

Then what I have done?

Well, if I think hard, I do realize something I’ve done sometimes. I have been getting along very well thanks to my family; I have been working very hard towards my destination; and above all, I’ve been living, safe and sound.

But I did make make mistakes. Some of them even made my mother rather sad at times. There was a time when I don’t want live in this world any more owing to the heavy stress of school work. This dangerous and ridiculous idea really scared my mother. She got heartbroken and extremely angry. Fortunately I realized my fault and, very fortunately again, I did very well in the Senior Middle School Entrance Examination.

And what I should have?

Actually I having been thinking about questions like this every single day. And I believe that as long as I’m living soundly, my mother should be quite happy. So, keep in good health and work hard to realize my dreams, that’s all I should have done; and that’s what I have done.

So, on this particular day, I have a clear conscience. And I believe it will be the same for me as well tomorrow and the day after tomorrow.
