ID ten T
You know, I loveeeee my BYJ sisters. And I also love my 2 elder 'real' sisters, why? Because they are so tolerant of me and really care about me. But I have a very pleasant discovery about them recently, only after I have moved to Japan. I always know that they are wise and worldly, but I found out that they are also articulate writers (hehe, we never had to communicate by email before :) They can be so witty even when they are writing ordinary and mundane topics. My sister just sent me what she happened to her tonight. I never post family letters, but I just can't resist this one. Hope she doesn't mind me sharing :)
I was having trouble with my computer. So I called Richard, the 11 year old next door whose bedroom looks like 'Mission Control', and asked him to come over.
Richard clicked a couple of buttons and solved the problem.
As he was walking away, I called after him, "So, what was wrong?" He replied, "It was an ID ten T error."
I didn't want to appear stupid, but nonetheless inquired, "An, ID ten T error? What's that? In case I need to fix it again."
Richard grinned. "Haven't you ever heard of an ID ten T error before?"
"No," I replied.
"Write it down," he said, "and I think you'll figure it out."
So I wrote down: I D 1 0 T
I used to like the little shit (*>*)
