Gracepiont Riverside Kid Strikes Again

Setting: Our beloved child M from Gracepoint Riverside gets a haircut.  Then next morning, Child M wakes up and exclaims:

"Yay!  My haircut is still on!"

English Patient: Very Close Pronunciation

Brother Y: Man, when I saw Kung Fu Panda 2 and saw the army scene, it reminded me of Lord of the Rings..  Solomon's Army.

Friend: Do you mean Saruman's Army?

English Patient: Rickshaws

Friend: We rented the surreys to ride around Monterey.

English Patient: What's a surrey?

Friend: They are sort of like rickshaws.

English Patient: Who's Rick Hsia?

Appetizing Menu

Here's a picture that I took a while ago at one of my favorite restaurants, China Village..

Their food is absolutely delicious, so don't be deceived by their menu.


More Wanda!

Setting: A bunch of Gracepoint sisters are gathered together cooking.

Sister J: Can you get Wanda for me?

Sister V: To use for cooking, or for you?

[silence]

Sister J: Wanda!

Sister V: I know.. but how much of it?

Everyone else in the kitchen: Wanda!  Not watta (water)!


NOTE: It's not very clear whether it was Sister J's pronunciation or Sister's V's hearing problem that's at fault here...

English Patient or Pundit Genius?

Sister S: My brother lived at a city that no one knows about in Korea.  Not even Koreans know about it.

Friend: Wow it's a really obscure city?

Sister S: Yeah scarcity.

NOTE: It is not clear if Sister S is an English Patient and didn't mean what she said..  or maybe she's a Pundit Genius.  Maybe this post belongs in the PunwithGracepoint site.

What Do You Want To Be?

Setting: A conversation between 3 children and their babysitting auntie from long time ago..

Kid#1: I want to be...an engineer!

Babysitter: Okay, just like your dad.

Kid#2: Me, too!

Babysitter: Yeah, your dad's an engineer too.  (turns toward her daughter)  How about you?

Daughter: I want to be...a grad student!

(Her father was in grad school for many years...  Apologies to all the grad students in our midst for this depressing story)

CS Lewis Fan

Brother P: Oh, the famous book that C.S. Lewis wrote.. it was called "The Lion, the Den and the Witch", right?

English Patients: Layman

Setting: A group of 3 sisters are talking, 2 of which are English Patients.

Friend: Wow, C.S. Lewis writes like a theologian.  I can't believe he was just a layman.

Sister D: Isn't it just lemon?

English Patient: Fill Me In

Setting: A group of sisters are laughing about something, and Sister S enters.

Sister S: What's going on?  Tell me!  Fill me up!!

Asian-American Political Correctness

English Patient: Chinese Ice-Cream

Setting: Brother J is at Ben & Jerry's Ice-Cream store with a group of people.

Friend: Hey Brother J, aren't you going to have any ice-cream?

Brother J: Nah.  I work for Dreyers, man.  If I eat my competitor's ice-cream, that would be ethnically wrong.
