This was what I had for lunch today – Nong Shim instant noodles and V energy drink. Instant noodles because I was too lazy to go out to the shops, and the energy drink because I was very sleepy the whole day. Healthy, it ain’t.
Speaking of which …
Mom: Did you have instant noodle again today?
Me: Yes and it’s “noodles”.
Mom: What did I say?
Me: You said “noodle”. As in, one noodle.
Me: I told you before – we eat many noodles, not just one.
Mom: It’s because of fried rice.
Mom: Fried rice.
Me: Yeah, so?!
Mom: It’s not called “fried rices” is it?
Me: That’s because there’s no plural for the word “rice”.
Mom: The English language is very confusing.
Me: Yes, it is. It’s quite contradictory sometimes.
Mom: What does that mean?
Me: It means something is not consistent. It’s one way sometimes and another other times.
Mom: Why didn’t you just say that?
Me: Because I could say it with one word.
Mom: Don’t try to be funny. And don’t use big words next time. I didn’t send you to English tuition just so you can make fun of me.
