Chinese WOTD – 挑


→ Tiāo → Pick (choose, select)

Living on your own, you get to make a lot more choices that usual. While that may be the case, the stakes of making the wrong one are noticeable higher. Some are as simple as walking into a wrong restaurant and forking quite a bit more money or not haggling enough and forking way more money. Some are more complicated such as not doing homework and helping with a friend’s video project.

I guess what I am trying to say is that we make choices every day, and it is wise to 小心挑 (choose carefully).
