bubble-tea

When I was at high school I had a friend. He did not like eating the “pearls” [tapioca balls] in the Pearl Milk Tea [bubble tea]. Every time he only drank the milk tea and left the pearls with me. Later I met another person who only liked the pearls in the bubble tea, so he always let me drank the milk tea and asked me to save the pearls for him. Throughout my high school years, the thing that was more important than the College Entrance Exam was—preventing them from meeting each other.

高中那会儿,我认识一个朋友,他不爱吃珍珠奶茶里的珍珠,每次就只喝奶茶,把珍珠留给我。后来我又认识一个朋友,他只爱吃珍珠奶茶里的珍珠,就先把奶茶给我喝,让我把珍珠留给他。整个高中,比高考更重要的是——阻止让他俩认识。
