To tell you the truth, I seldom go to theatre, because I think those who often go to theatre should have a talent for music. My theory has something to do with a funny experience of my own. Several years ago when my wife, Dorothy, wanted to mark her thirtieth birthday, she thought of something special, celebrating her birthday in a theatre and appreciating a famous concert. This idea threw such a strong motivation upon her that she booked three tickets, one for me, one for her mother and one for herself. Then the very moment finally came, and the three of us arrived at the theatre wearing thick clothes, as it was very cold that evening. There came the soft music and soon the three of us fell asleep. While the other audiences were appreciating the classical music, we three slept soundly until the concert came to an end. Thank goodness! The theater clerks woke us up. Showing sympathy, they asked if something was wrong with us.

At nine o’clock last night, it was snowing but I heard some light knocks at the door. Knowing that no one would come to see me so late, I pretended not to have heard the knocks. But again and again the noise came and later became louder and louder. I had no choice but to unlock the door, only to find a figure with a long knife in his hand. He looked so frightening that I tried not to let him in but failed. “A robber!” I thought. Robberies often happen lately but I have never met one myself.. Now with a real robber standing in front of me, I almost lost control. I was just about to call the police when a low voice came, “Guess who I am?” Seeing I was puzzled enough, he let out a loud laughter. Dear me! It was my naughty nephew, who had just come back from a make-up show. The next minute he was dressed in neat clothes with a necklace around his neck, and faded in darkness.

Last November, I was given a VIP card to have my vocation in a vast valley, which was one of the various kinds of events to celebrate the anniversary of our company. I had planned to arrive there via the village where one of the colleagues used to pay a visit, but in vain. So I directly went to the valley. Immediately I arrived at the valley, I thought every cell in my body woke up. The vivid scenery was more than a live TV broadcast, with every visible fantastic view in sight. The trees were waving their branches as if saying hello to me and a variety of strange stones stand everywhere as if serving as safety guards. The voices from the small waterfalls kept me refreshed while the strange noises from the caves made me nervous.
I will never forget this very experience in the valley.

Admittedly, job-hunting is becoming more and more difficult with tens of thousands of university graduates coming out every year. Some who have strong ambitions will head to more advanced education to get promoted, but most of the graduates will be faced with the hunting of jobs. Time and time again, they will be neglected by the employers and even get cheated by some illegal agencies. Sometimes hot sunshine finds tens of them stop from door to door. At other times, evening finds groups of them who sit together looking anxious or disappointed.
With a university diploma or a degree, graduates come out with the hope that they can be admitted as white-collars by large firms. When asked by the interviewers, some of them said they had never thought of being employed as skilled blue-collars. What a shame!
