I just got a funny post from Chen and um...well you'll see
"Dear Ms. Secretary,
My son has asked me to post this on his behalf. It must be troublesome but thank you for assisting him. He mentioned something about having to update his work, but I don't think he's currently capable of that.
You see, my son enjoys anime and manga and while I don't begrudge him his hobbies, he has a habit of wanting to try things out that he sees or reads about. As such he attempted some form of tai chi breathing exercises on our balcony. Winter has recently ended but the weather is still cold and he wasn't exactly well clothed. In the end he's caught the worse cold he's ever had and is currently sniffling in bed.
He said it was important to tell his "pirates" that he will not be making an update today and to forgive him. I am not sure what this is slang for, but I hope my son has not joined any street gangs. I remember him aspiring to be a rapper at some point, but he appears to have given up that dream for now.
So it seems the Captain did something stupid to get inspiration again and now he's out of action. Um, I hope you can forgive his nature, it's a little troublesome but its not all bad. I think he probably read one of those action mangas and tried to do some kind of training to power up. He has done it before to improve his skills, but usually he did it within the confines of his room. So, I think he'll be back tomorrow if not I'll probably get a note from him. Sorry about this and enjoy your evening
