Another Friday pun

There is quite an exodus of foreigners from China at the moment - particularly from Beijing, the hyper-anxious political centre, and particularly amongst the long-term expats who form most of my friends out there. While this is rather sad for me on a personal level, it also engenders a sense that we may be approaching a tipping point in China's modern history, and that is quite exhilarating, though also somewhat alarming.

As I explained to some friends in the States the other day...
"We live in exiting times."

Very good. Maybe a bit better to read than to hear -- it's almost a, um, typographical pun, inducing a double-take in the reading. But I'm still proud to know someone who came up with it!
