During lunch time, we had a good chitchat with a co-worker.
One of the topics is about birthdays. The co-worker mentioned that his birthday is on May 5. Then he proudly asked us which eminent person’s birthday was also fall on the same day. We guessed around for a while but couldn’t figure it out. Finally he announced triumphantly,”it is Karl Marx.” Wow, that’s indeed a big name. The co-worker then continued unexpectedly, “now you know how I got my English name.” LOL!
During the chitchat, we also talked about real estate investment, one of the topics that I am mostly interested in. The co-worker bought several foreclosure houses and rent them out with a good rate of return. I learned a lot from this informative topic.
