a parent telling stories over tea and sugar:

"my colleague was in a restaurant in china with a client who made a fortune selling condoms to the chinese. he priced them at half the normal price and wanted to show my colleague that his products weren't the cheap stuff (no holes and all.) so he pulled out his condoms at the dinner table, opened them, and poured hot water in them. and he did it several times, with all sorts of condoms. soon everyone at the restaurants started looking at them, and my colleague started feeling embarassed. 'please put them away,' he asked, 'everyone's looking at us.' and the client goes, 'so what, we're at a dinner table! i'm just showing you food, see, here's the chocolate one, here's the strawberry one...'"

welcome home.
