In this episode, we'll dive into the hilarious tale of a mistaken taste, when a spicy chilli pepper brings two friends to tears of laughter and creates an unforgettable memory of friendship.
En: Beijing, a bustling city, has a community called "Sunshine Garden". In one of the apartments in Sunshine Garden, there lived a pair of good friends, Zhang Wei and Liu Li. They were not only roommates but also the best of friends, and many stories and jokes happened between them. However, on an seemingly ordinary afternoon, something with a touch of comedy occurred.
En: That day, Liu Li had just returned from the market with a lot of ingredients, preparing to make a delicious dinner. In her shopping bag full of vegetables, there was something that caught Zhang Wei's attention - a string of spicy red chili peppers.
En: At that moment, Zhang Wei was facing away from Liu Li, playing computer games while reaching into the shopping bag. His fingers touched the string of peppers, mistaking them for cherries. So, he took a bite, only to be immediately overwhelmed by the extreme spiciness, filling his mouth with a burning sensation.
En: Zhang Wei's face turned bright red due to the heat, his distorted expression looking like a balloon about to burst. This situation instantly caused Liu Li to burst into laughter, mistakenly thinking that Zhang Wei was comically imitating a cartoon character, mistaking the chili peppers for cherries as a parody of a cartoon scene. Liu Li laughed so hard that tears streamed down her face.
En: However, Zhang Wei quickly ran to the tap, wanting to alleviate the fiery sensation. After Liu Li's disastrous bite, she suddenly realized and quickly fetched him some milk. When the spiciness subsided a bit, Zhang Wei jokingly looked at Liu Li, whose laughter had caused her to bend over.
En: "Is this my funniest friend?" Zhang Wei wiped the milk off his mouth and asked with a smile.
En: "I am your friend, but you are my comedy star," Liu Li answered with a smile. "You make all my fatigue disappear in an instant."
En: From then on, whenever they recalled that spicy afternoon, they would burst into uncontrollable laughter. And the chili pepper that was accidentally bitten became an amusing memory of their friendship.
