Bill and Jill were going to visit Da-wei and Li-hua Wu in Taiwan for several days. Before they left America, Bill and Jill tried to learn about Chinese food and Taiwanese ways of doing things. They wanted to be polite. They learned that most people in Taiwan eat rice, drink tea, and take off their shoes when they go into a friend's apartment. Bill and Jill even learned to use chopsticks.

At the same time, Da-wei and Li-hua learned about American food and American ways of doing things. They wanted to be friendly. When Bill and Jill came to the Wu's house, Da-wei and Li-hua told them to keep their shoes on. Later they went out for dinner. They ate pizza and drank Coke. The next few days, they had breakfast in a coffee shop and ate hamburgers in a fast-food restaurant.

Here are the lyrics of a song.

Don’t Ask Him Why

by Tim Blair

He was afraid.
He was knocked on the head.
He was too little to know why Mom and Dad didn’t like him.
He was only five when he was sent to the hospital.

So don’t ask him why he did not cry for help
He was too little to answer the question.
He was too young to know he could ask for help.

Sometimes things go wrong in this world.
Still there must be something we can do
Something to give him hope and love.

So let’s do it. Do it. Do it.
Give him your hand.
Give him your love.
Only you and I can help him.

So don’t ask him why.
Never ever ask him why.

Dear Ann,

I am really worried about my daughter, Shirley. I don't know why, but she always thinks she is too heavy. She eats only a little rice and some vegetables. She refuses fish, beef and pork. "Cake" and "desert" are taboo words to her.

The problem is that she is NOT heavy at all. In fact, the doctor says she is skinny. But she still believes being thinner will make her prettier. I'm afraid she will get sick before she becomes any "prettier."

Worried father,

Joseph
