The family TV show Happy Days ran for 11 years from 1974 to 1984, creating several by-product series. In one episode (一集) , there was a new character, an alien from
outer space. He was played by an unknown actor. People roared with laughter at his crazy antics (滑稽动作). No one had seen this type of comedy before, and they protested for
more. The network administrators knew they had a new star on their hands: from that single performance, Robin Williams became the star of a brand-new comedy series, Mork and
Mindy. He played the character of an alien who comes to the Earth in a giant egg-shaped spacecraft. He is friendly, and observes and reports back to his planet. He sleeps
standing on his head, thinks that all eggs are spacecraft, and sometimes wears his clothes backwards. His kind new friend, Mindy, helps to take care of him. They marry, and
have a child together. But Mork gives birth, and the child is actually an old man who ages backward! In addition to his work as a comedian on this and other projects, Robin
Williams is also an excellent dramatic actor. Anyone who has seen his films will agree that he is a man who can make you laugh, cry, think, and feel.

Girls dream of having the perfect wedding, but when I got engaged, I have up any dream of the perfect day. My mother has to have her own way. She’s a very nice woman,
but sheˊs convinced that what she wants is exactly what you want, and you cannot tell her otherwise. Since my parents were paying for the wedding, I kept my mouth shut, and
let her decide everything! I was not married in church, but in the same hall where my brother was married. It had recently been remodeled, and all the charming features, such
as a large stone fireplace, were removed. She insisted that my cousin make my wedding dress. I wanted a simple long white dress with long sleeves. My cousin made a short
dress without sleeves. My cousin also added a HUGE bow on the back of the dress that looked as if I sat in a wedding cake! My mother also insisted on making the cake, but she
ran out of time to frost (给?覆上糖霜) it, and a huge, plain cake was served. I wanted a single rose for a bouquet (花束) ;
my mother insisted that my sister, a florist
(花店店主) , make me a huge bouquet of lilies (百合花) , which I am allergic to! My mother referred to this as “my daughter’s dream wedding”. Dream wedding? More like a nightmare!

When I lived in Canada, many people asked me about Chinese customs. I was happy to talk about our many lovely traditions, such as Spring Festival. But I was unprepared
for the number of people who asked me about Japan, Korea, and India! It seemed unbelievable to me that so many people were unaware that China is a nation with its own
tradition and history. Recently, while working on a new textbook at a publishing company, I asked a foreign colleague about weddings in Nigeria. She looked at me as if I were
crazy, and said, ″How would I know? Iˊm from Canada.″ I told her that all foreign cultures are alike, so she should know. She threw her head back and laughed. ″Xiao Li,″
she told me. ″I donˊt mean to hurt your feelings, but all countries have customs different from one another! Didnˊt you tell me how angry you were when Western people
asked you about Japan? Itˊs not just nations that are different: country people have different ways of celebrating from city people. Celebrations are different from family
to family as well. ″ At first, my feelings were very hurt, but then I realized she was right. From that time on, I have not expected my foreign colleagues to know all about the customs or languages of lands other than their own!
