Dogs and cats
Americans like to say, “It is raining cats and dogs ”
The alarm is never ever lazy! The familiar music stops my dreams every day at 05:15 am. No exception today.
After a quick wash I was ,a little sleepy in my car, on my way to the Southern Campus which is 16 kilometer away.
Just opposite the old campus, near the express company, a big, fierce, white dog rushed to my left wheel, barking profusely. Before I had a chance to react to him/her, it jerked back , not from my vehicle wheel but from the chain tied around its own neck. What a dog?!
The adventure continued when I was driving inside the school at 5:43am. I drove slowly and carefully as the sign says: 15 km/h because the students were beginning to run to the sports-ground for their morning run. A black cat, just in front of my car, jaywalked at a speed of 150 km/h, I suppose. “Why are you in such a hurry?” The feeling gave not response so I surmised the cat living in the school has got the habit of saving and cherishing TIME! What a cat!
I stood in front of the international teaching centre, waiting for my students to come down for morning exercise, still trembling with fear, following my multiple encounters with the two pets!
Then..., my students Weng Hao, Jin Weixu came to my side at 5:45am. ...
A new day begins!
