A funny story my mom shared with me during the aftermath of “Frankenstorm Sandy” (this is the text in the illustration):
During “Frankenstorm” Sandy, the morning of the blackout, my mom heard a commotion out in the hallway. She found 3 of her elderly neighbors from the fifth floor walking down the dark steps. When she asked where they were going, they said they’re going out to catch some rats to eat! (Actually, this is what they said, “There’s no food in the apartment so we’re going to catch some rats to eat!”)
It sounded so much funnier when she recounted the story in chinese!
I don’t know if this story was funnier or the durian purchase during Hurricane Irene last year!
