Chicago Chinatown and Arlington Heights

Friday, September 28, 2012

Woke up around 7:00am and had breakfast at home. Hubby took the day off work. Started our journey to Chicago Chinatown at 8:20am.

We arrived at Chicago Chinatown around 10:30am. Did some groceries shopping at two grocery stores which include buying Chinese Mooncakes. This year Mooncake Festival falls on September 30. Went to get some HK TVB Cantonese dramas. Had Dim Sum for lunch at Triple Crown Restaurant. More shopping after lunch. Left Chinatown around 2:30pm.

Next destination Mitsuwa Japanese Store, Arlington Heights. More shopping which means more walking! Dinner was fresh Salmon Sashimi from Mitsuwa. Arrived home 8:00pm.

Overall, I stay within my nutrition range and I got a lot of exercise from walking today. Unfortunately, I forgot my camera this morning, so no pictures today. I am very tired now. Need to clean up kitchen and shower.

Hope everyone have had a great day!

A Dinner Conversation That Went Wrong

Thursday, September 27, 2012

WIFE: 'What would you do if I died? Would you get married again?'

HUSBAND: 'Definitely not!'

WIFE: 'Why not - don't you like being married?'

HUSBAND: 'Of course I do.'

WIFE: 'Then why wouldn't you remarry?'

HUSBAND: 'Okay, I'd get married again.'

WIFE: 'You would? (with a hurtful look on her face).'

HUSBAND: (makes audible groan).

WIFE: 'Would you sleep with her in our bed?'

HUSBAND: 'Where else would we sleep?'

WIFE: 'Would you replace my pictures with hers?'

HUSBAND: 'That would seem like the proper thing to do.'

WIFE: 'Would she use my golf clubs?'

HUSBAND: 'No, she's left-handed.'

WIFE: - - - silence - - -

HUSBAND: 'Crap.'
