A few funnies while in China.....

Several comical things have happened while here in China (ok maybe I should say funny to us)........

The second day that Qu Yan was with us, we met our facilitator in the lobby and she looked at Lucy dressed in a cute little dress with a white bow in her hair and said - "you might want to take out the white bow".   I think I just kinda stared at her.  "White bows/flowers mean you're attending a funeral"!!  Okie Dokie -- let's get rid of the bow!
She also said that men shouldn't wear green hats.  It means his wife has another lover.  Merle was still up in our room and I'm thinking..... I just know he's going to come down wearing his green Eagles hat!  Sure enough the elevator door opens and Merle comes out with his Eagles hat on!  We all started laughing saying - great our daughter is headed to a funeral and my husband is advertising that I have another lover!  LOL!
(As we were laughing Sherry told us that Merle's Eagle hat was fine as it was teal and not green!  Good times!)

While eating dinner the one night, Emily says to Qu Yan - "Chew, chew, chew"  (because she had stuffed her mouth very full).  I said - "Um Emily her name is Qu!  (remember - Qu is pronounced "chew!")  The three of us got a good laugh over this one!  Qu Yan just looked at us like we lost our marbles!

Our friends Dave and Kathi needed to go to a bank to exchange U.S. currency for Chinese currency.  Apparently none of us are very observant, and we weren't sure where the closest bank was so I asked the attendant in the hotel "Where is the closest bank?", to which she replied "uhh.. right next door" (adjoining the hotel out the door to the left was a bank!) - DUH!  She must have been thinking "smart Americans!"

The first several times the five of us would get into the hotel elevator we would be standing and chatting for several moments before we realized we weren't moving.  Ummm..... someone needs to press the numerical button for the floor you want to go to!  DUH!

Oh it's so good to be able to laugh at ourselves and our stupidity!!
