I have this one kid in one of my older glasses who is spherical. I think I’ve talked about him before. But it’s not that he’s spherical–it’s that he ROCKS it. Like he is fat and proud. And I love it. He’s such a jolly kid. He’s got a lot of spunk. He’s hell to try and control in class, but whatever. At least he’s a happy kid. This is also the kid that asks me EVERY DAY if I like Lamborghinis. Every day. “Teacher do you know Lamborghini?” >.< “Yes, I like Lamborghinis. I still like Lamborghinis. I like them just as much as the last class when you asked me 7 times.”
Anyway, on Tuesday this kid asked me: “Teacher are you wedding?” I wanted to reply “What, like having a wedding right now?” but I didn’t. He meant “Are you married?” Then I said. “No.” And he said, “So you don’t have a baby?” (I get asked about being pregnant a lot, I guess maybe because Koreans don’t have stomachs, haha.) Anyway, so I replied “Nope, I’m just fat.” And he gave me this HUGE grin and just started laughing uncontrollably. In a nice way. Like “YEEEAH welcome to the club! We rule!” Haha, when that class is good they make me happy. I see them outside of class, too, which makes me feel like I have a life.
Also, the other day I was teaching “The Christmas Carol” to a class of middle schoolers, and I was trying to get them to tell the story again.
So I said “So… Scrooge (they all called him Scroogie) went back to the past, and what was he doing?”
“He was at a party.”
“And what was he doing at the party?”
“He was doing…. pretty girl dancing with!”
It took all my power not to collapse into laughter. Ahhhh funny mixups.
