I was checking my Blackberry at the mall as both of my parents were in the washroom. My dad comes out and he starts marveling at my new gadget. Then my mom comes out and she notices it too. I’ve had this thing for over two months now and they are just now noticing it…funny.
But, my laugh for the day came in the form of my mother asking me about the Blackberry:
Mom: Is that your new phone?
Mom: How long have you had it?
Me: Two months
Mom: Was it expensive?
Me: Yeah, it was.
(note most of the conversation is in Cantonese except for below where its mixed)
Mom: Is it a Blueberry?
Me: (laughing my ass off) Blueberry???!!!! You mean “Blackberry”?
Mom: (laughs) Oh…B l a c k b e r r y (said with a Chinese accent)
Blueberry..that’s a first. I may just have to call it that from now on instead of a crackberry. Too funny. God bless my Mom, I needed that chuckle.
