During the semestral break, I let VGood practice writing her characters – “sha-di” as it is called in Chinese. She must have gotten so bored one day that, when I looked up from my PC (as usual, mom was blogging!), VGood was gone. She went off outdside – I could hear her delighted shrieks over something she found in the garden. She did leave an abstract.. err.. “sculpture”: a cabinet knob topped with her eraser, on her shau kai (writing pad). I guess it said: BORED.
