    so my reading addiction started to show when i talk with people :blobtired:
    my friends always look at me with that weird look "what she is talking about' :blobunamused:because some analogies from the stories i read or simply some terms and concepts slip when i talk :blob_coffee:.
    like today, my mother was watching a series ... long story short, the mc made me seethe with anger. So i started telling her that she was a white lotus. pointing at the tv look look she is crying without any reason!:blob_catflip:
    omg why do they always forgive them though they are the ones at wrong!:blobcat_hyper:

    so i forget myself and made it my job to nag and explain everything she needed to know.
    lol mom was like: what white lotus? please let me enjoy my series.

    do you have moments like this when you bring your Chinese novels package out to the public?:blobsalute:
    had you ever have a funny situation because of it?:blobtongue:
    ( just wanna feel that i'm not the only one in this world):blobsweat:

    Sometimes? I think? But it also happens with other vocab that pertains to only a certain community. I think I had to explain something I said from the fanfiction community that seemed so obvious and normal to me, but my husband had never heard of it. I can’t remember what the word was, though.

    I have been known to use the terms “black belly” and “hug a fat tree” and I read more Japanese and Korean. I got them from manhua. So, you’re not alone...

    No, fortunately for me I don't bring what I read into real life, you should probably read something else till you find new terms or something :blobsweat_2:

    Agreed
    Many times I want to use the phrases and idioms in cnovels but then I remember the other party won’t understand and I’m too lazy to explain so I let it be.

    It definitely fun talking in forum cuz everyone understands :blobsmilehappyeyes:

    I've found myself using "Can't see Mt. Tai" and occasionally black belly. But people seem to be able to figure out what black belly means on their own.

    There's a reason why "birds of a feather flock together."

    I'm anti-social so I don't talk to people.... I only type so I caught most of them and change them before I push send. :cautious:

    If you're saying too 'much' novels instead of too 'many' , you are clearly not reading too many novels. Maybe too much MTL.:blobwoah:
