Grad2: People who grow up learning Chinese can memorize really well. Native English-speakers are more innovative. So would you rather have Chinese or English be your kids' first language?
Grad2: Well, there has to be a first first language.
Me: Maybe I'll raise them with Chinglish.
Me: Nevermind, that's a bad idea.
Me: Oh I know! I'm going to marry someone who speaks flawless Mandarin, I speak English, and we'll just talk to our kids in those languages!
Me: What did your father just call me?!
Kids: An imbecile.
Me: The nerve! Well you can tell him...
Grad2: Yeh, good idea. haha That'll make for a healthy relationship.
Me: Well, at least my children will be bilingual.
