“You have been watching soccer for two hours.” Pammy says to her husband Pan, “and look even Armee is addicted to TV now.”
Armee is the couple’s tabby cat, who’s sitting on the sofa right next to Pan, assuming a similar posture as Pan, except that the little feline occasionally licks himself.
“It’s my favorite team. It will be over soon,” Pan says while his eyes glued to the television. “Unless there’s an overtime.”
“You know what I am thinking? The reason you are addicted to soccer is because you get bored. We need to create an interactive learning environment at home. Everybody has to have a learning goal.” Pammy says.
“Pammy, please. I am tired after a day’s work. Soccer is my only solace. Give me a break, will you?”
“Soccer is just your habit. I figured you can probably change your habit. We need improvement and progress and growth, don’t you think? Here are our learning schedules. I took the liberty to print them out. And here is something for you to start tonight.” Pammy thrust several pages in front of Pan.
Pan took them in his hand. While his eyes are still on the TV screen, he glanced at the pages.
“What is this? ‘Thirty Beautiful Tricks To Teach A Cat’? Are you serious? So your ‘everybody’ includes Armee?” Pan stares at his wife as if she’s mad.
