On the eve of my last day of work, and on the first day of the Chinese New Year, I came home to find my leopard gecko shedding her skin. The symbolism didn’t escape me.
(Please ignore my obnoxious commentary…)
My mom called me during dinner and said, Gong xi fa cai! That’s the standard Chinese New Year saying and means, more or less, Best Wishes, Make Money! Then she said, “Well, I guess you’re probably not going to fa cai this year.” No, Mom, probably not.
