下雨天﹐留客天。

weather: rainy
outside: 17.6°C
mood: ...
《下雨天留客天留我不留》


Is it 《下雨天留客﹐天留我不留。》? Rainy days are for company. The heavens charge me with a guest, but I must decline.

Or is it 《下雨天﹐留客天。 留我不﹖ 留。》? Rainy day, a day for company. Will you have me over? Yes.

I just really like my teapot =)

I have this teapot that can be dismantled for easy cleaning. But I love to just remove the spherical pyrex container part and use it without the handle. My Mother-In-Law thinks I'm bananas XD

Anyway, I wanted to post a picture and needed an excuse. =)

great example to show how important punctuation marks are. =)

I just really like my teapot =)
does that mean this sentence is found on your teapot?

Hiya =)

Oh, no =) I have this teapot that can be dismantled for easy cleaning. My Mother-In-Law thinks I'm bananas, but I love to just remove the spherical pyrex container part and just use it without the handle.

Anyway, I wanted to post a picture and needed an excuse. =)

Haha! =) That would be a good quote to engrave on a teapot though =)
