I’m sure most of us have heard about International Radio Code used for communication. That is, the A for Alpha, B for Bravo, C for Charlie, etc code. These code are mainly used to make sure the other party on the opposite side (usually on the other end of the phone) that we talk to get the spelling of something correctly and accurately. Anyways, my colleague that sit on the other side of the cubicle was talking on the phone. He was trying to spell “GPO Box” to the other end.
E: “GPO BOX. G, P for Peter…”
Now I’m pretty sure O stands for Oscar. Here’s the next part of the conversation:
E: “O for … Oreo.”
Oreo?!? What the !@#%? I nearly bursted out in laughter. Luckily I still can control myself. So I giggled silently. How come from all objects that start with the letter ‘O’, he came to pick Oreo as the substitute. He could say ‘O’ for Octa too. But he chose not to. Hehuehehe. Anyway, since he mentioned Oreo, it came across my mind to have the Milo bar I bought yesterday from the supermarket as my tea-time snack. Next to my Milo bars, there’s a packet of Korean seaweed too. So I had both for my tea-time snack. I gotta say the seaweed tasted so damn good that it made me wanna ask for more. Too bad that’s the last packet. Gotta restock next time I go to asian groceries. ^-*
