                           Hilary's Husband

A true story (?) from the Japanese Embassy in US:

Prime Minister Mori was given some basic English conversation training before he visits Washington and meets with President Bill Clinton. The instructor told Mori " Prime Minister, when you shake hand with President Clinton, please say 'how are you'. Then Mr Clinton should say "I am fine, and you ?" Now you should say 'me too'.

Afterwards we translators will do all the work for you." It looks quite simple, but the truth is ................

When Mori met Clinton, he mistakenly said "Who Are You ?". Mr Clinton was a bit shocked but still managed to react with humor : "Well, I am Hilary's husband, ha ha..." Then Mori replied confidently "Me too, ha ha ha.."

Then there was a long silent moment in the meeting room.


昨日之我, 非今日之我, 我有無限的可能.

明日之我, 非今日之我, 努力創造開心的我.

花開花落不由己, 緣生緣滅自有時.

花開紅滿枝, 花落自有時.


Our lives are not our own. From womb to tomb, we are bound to others

-- past and present. And by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future.
