Yes, today is a very special day. It is the Olympic Beijing 2008 Opening day. Don’t forget to watch it. I cannot wait to watch a terrific show.
And, it is a day for fathers (爸爸 bà bà). Because Aug. 08 in Chinese is 八月八号（bā yuè bā hào)；two bā’s make the sound bà bà, which means Daddy.
So, if you get chance, don’t forget to tell your Dad “Happy Father’s Day!”
