Brought these home from the local library for some holiday reading.
With Chinese New Year only three days away, it'll be a busy weekend. My parents are getting on in age and its only natural that they expect me to take up most of the spring cleaning chores at home. My mother is a neat freak who spends hours each day cleaning a different part of the house. As the festive season approaches, she becomes particularly obsessed. So when she spotted me with these books, she flipped.
"When will you find time to read these?" she wanted to know. "Don't you have cleaning to do?"
It's bad luck to fight with your mother during CNY. I think I had better go tidy up my room now.
