I have a female childhood friend who's now living in Battambang province. She's not only a very intelligent lady but also has a great sense of humour. She makes me laugh all the time when we see or talk to one another. We speak mostly in Khmer but practice our English on each other whenever we have a chance. One of the qualities I like about her is that we never get angry in anything we do or say to each other.
She had just forewarded this above picture chart to me.
I telephoned to tell her I like it. It's very funny and said,
"Hmmmm, by looking at the picture chart I would say it's GLOBAL WARMING 2007!
She paused, "Huh ? " Sounded confused. "Niyay pi ey 'global warming 2007', Thom ? (What are you talking about, Thom)".
"Do you have your computer on with that graph chart in front of you ?" I asked.
She answered "Ning heuy- affirmative".
I pointed to her "Now, you have to analyse and make a prediction from that chart".
Before I was about to explain why I said it's Global Warming 2007, I heard she laughed so hilariously on the phone " 'Yiss! charng teh teass!-I should slap you. You have a dirty mind, Thom", she said.
I just smiled.
