My dad always sends us sweet emails while my sisters and I in college. I think his grammar mistakes make his message stronger, haha. Gives me a smile everytime…
Just to remind all of you that Lent season start today & we forgot to let all of you know about Ash Wednesday. Any way no meat on Friday until Easter & during the Lent I would like all of you use this theme “LET SOMETHING GOOD BE SAID”. Whenever your conversation start with anyone around you, try to say all a good thing to people. Always try to FORGIVE each other & FORGET all the bad things behind us, be THANKSFUL what we had. I believe whenever you make people around you happy that will make you happier.
Love U all very much & have a great Lent season.
Daddyo & Mommyo =) =)
My dad sent me the following email with the subject line, “Protein”…
Hey, if you are in LA not SB and hungry for protein instead of Ramen diet, then call me to get some meat for lun-ner.
I emailed my Dad to let him know that I passed my level 1 CFA exam. He responded with the following email…
Great job! I knew all along that you would pass out.
During winter break I went to see my dad at his office (he is a dentist), and he found two cavities in my mouth. After the initial freak out, he told me he would email me when he had time to tell me how to take care of my teeth…
How is school ? Hope everything go well. I got your mail box number,I’ll send the parcel Friday. For the prevention of your teeth health :
1, brush and floss twice a day,remember to do through job before you go to bed at night.
2, use the special toothpaste,PreviDent,once or twice a week.brush with it ,don’t rinse,floss then spit,and go to bed.
3, make sure you brush all the teeth,don’t miss the last tooth.
4, remember your last molar tilt toward back.so you need to position your toothbrush accordingly.
5. it’s a good idea look in the mirror when you brush ,once a week at least,so you don’t miss some areas all the time.
6, never leave food impacted between your teeth,use toothpick or floss to remove impacted food right after meal.
If you follow the guidelines,then you probably won’t get another cavity. We got 12′ of snow this time,not too hard to clear the driveway. Drive carefully. Hope you have a great semester !
Love , Dad
Subject line: Request for English Words
The following is my description to your sickness to my friend in China. I do not know what English words should be used in the passage. Please fill in it and send me back.
Ultrasonic waves did not find anything in her belly. But whenever she eats something, her belly soon becomes bulgy. A lot of gas is generated in her . She takes some medicine to force her ? every day as so to reduce the pressure in her .
We plan to see a specialist to keep checking. My wife guess it should be a kind of affections in her stomach and .. It should not be a big problem. I will let you know when it is clear.
Here’s a 2-part email from my dad thanking my boyfriend and me for the pies we brought him from a popular pie shop, Dangerously Delicious Pies. His English is pretty good and usually isn’t very fobby, but I guess he must have been bored at home or something…
Thank you for Baltimore’s Dangerously Delicious Pies. As advertised, they are visually dangerous and tastes dangerous as well. In fact, a slice of savory pie with pulled BBQ pork is huge and substantial and it tastes far sweeter than a fruit pie with berry filling. I will try another slice – a steak with mushed onion, etc. - tomorrow since trying both at the same time may be too dangerous. My expectation for the steak pie is high now! Good American food comes in American size !
By the way, I guess all the good staff in Baltimore is in the old downtown !? Is it a dangerous place – which is recently ranked one of 7 most dangerous places in the world in the internet ? If so, be very careful to go to get a dangerous pies in an extremely dangerous place !!!
Anyway, thank you once again.
The next day, after my dad ate the other savory slice, he sent us another email…
Dangerously Delicious Pie Report – Part 2
The word “Savory” is just fitting to this steak pie. You love meat, you love steak – this pie is very good with a touch of smoky flavor. This one is an easy winner over pulled BBQ pork. However and once again we have to understand it correctly that their naming “Dangerously” is not their humor but they mean it – this tastes very good but is actually a dangerous pie !
