An Ap­peal

Special Focus - - Humor - By Wang Yazhong

Imet a girl re­cently. We re­ally hit it off; we both thought we’d found the one to spend the rest of our lives with.

Yes­ter­day, I showed my mom the girl’s pic­ture. Mom looked at the pic­ture, shak­ing her head. Anx­iously, I said: “Ma, she’s re­ally a great girl; she even looks a lit­tle bit like you when you were young.”

My mom looked at me gravely and said: “That’s ex­actly why you shouldn’t be with her. You can see from the way she looks that she’s a bully. She’ll have you do­ing all the house­work.” I lis­tened to what she was say­ing, try­ing to counter her ar­gu­ments while eye­ing for my dad’s help.

Sur­pris­ingly, my dad got up straight­away and said, “Make way, I need to mop the floor.”
