Yesterday hubby and I went to the dentist to do teeth deep cleaning.
When the dentist was doing the cleaning for hubby, she had a chit chat with me. When we finished one topic, she suddenly said, “last time when you were here to do the deep cleaning, you were very scared (怕).”
She spoke to me in Chinese, and her pronunciation wasn’t accurate, so what I heard was that “…I was very fat（胖）.” I was sure though that she was trying to flatter me, but the way she conveyed the message astounded me.
Last time… I was fat… so now… I am slim, right? I thought in my little mind with a very good attitude. 🙂
On our way back home, hubby said to me, “she said that you were very scared last time, but what I heard was that you were very fat. Her pronunciation is terrible. Ha ha. It’s funny though.”
“Oh, really! Now it makes sense. I thought she said I was fat until just now you told me. ” I replied. LOL.
