It was probablely about 9 am. I heard my phone rang.
"Oh shit! Nooo" I covered the blanket and decided I'm not gonna bother to wake up...yet.
Ring went off.
Three minutes later, it rang again.
Ok, ok...I got up and tried to reach the damn phone and answer it. I walked down to our living room blind and picked up the phone.
"@#^...um...teacher Iris? Um...Hi~" Wow, she has high pitch tones.
"Oh, Hi ! Um..Dr. K?" You sounded like Dr. K.
"How are you? " My eyes were barely open, hack, it's freackin' Saturday morning.
"Fine, fine...You are fired!" "WHAT? I'm what?? Fired??" I opened my eyes, shocked actually.
"No, no...I mean..." She went on blahing something else, which all sounded like dreaming to me.
"..um...father died. No class....sorry father died... this morning!"
I paused for about half a minute, still trying to figure out where was I, in dreams?
"Huh?? My father died this morning??" I shouted, finally woke up.
"No no no...I mean my father in law died this morning, so I have to cancel the class for next week. Sorry!"
Oh,....oh. Now I see, I'm in the reality and that is Dr. K speaking to me and the day light is tooo bright.
"Oh! Um...really. I am so sorry Dr. K." "Don't worry about the class, I am really sorry to hear this."
"It's ok, he's pretty old and been sick for a long time. So, I'll call you again for the class."
"No worries, take care, bye Dr K!"
That was how I woke up this morning. If you had known me just a little bit, you'd know that i'm the dumbest person in the world to deal with. So how can I be "ok" and smart enough even to talk when I still feel like I'm dreaming for the first half hour of my everyday waking ups.
I hope I didn't say something stupid to her over the phone...hell, if I did, I'd never find out anyway! Who knows, maybe I really did get fired...over phone.
Hey Lat..lefty, Yeah, Dr K is surely a weird one. She often says bye far too fast, which often leaves me hanging and thinking I might be fired. Haha! Oh and she also told me yeaterday that the Chinese translations in the magazine are all shit.
