A little joke

Just something funny that happened a few nights ago, which also shows how blur my M can be.

A few nights ago, I was breathing quite heavily, and my M was a little concerned. So before she went to bed, she SMS my MM (he's out late for the night), to say that I seem to be breathing badly, and to check in on me when he comes home.

So that night, my MM came back at 2am, and after checking on me, he went to nudge my sleepy M and said, "Herbie 没事" (pronounced Herbie mei shi), which means Herbie is ok. But my M heard "Herbie 没死" (prounced Herbie mei si), which means Herbie is not dead. Granted, the two words 事 (shi) and 死 (si) sounded similar, but it means a world of difference!

Oh well, in any way, she's just glad I'm still alive (没死).

Heheheh this is funny in a "I feel so relieved kind of way".

Your M must be worrying over you every single minute (I know- Been there).

Herbie, stay strong, we will pray even more so that you get well soon and give your M lots of love back :-)
