Saturday taunting.

I love waking up to a clean flat on Saturday. Which is a lot easier when both your bathroom and kitchen sink aren't completely fucked. Today is: Watching Roman Holiday (inspired by The Kid), making (mostly) vegetarian kimchi jjigae (an effort which none of my coworkers approve of), SORTING THE REST OF THE FUCKING PLUMBING (so I don't burn my toes off when I shower anymore) (I might have to handle some caulk hohoho), waiting for the students to make their way home from school past my front window so I can wave and taunt them about the fact that I didn't have to go.

That last one's mostly a joke. Because I already taunted them about it at school on Friday. As I do every Friday before Saturday classes.

"Good morning!"

"Good morning!"

"How are you?"



*indistinct, loud and blended*

"Who's hungry? Who's sleepy? Who's really really really happy to be in English class? Oh no. Okay. Guess what?"


"Today is Friday! Hooray!"


"So tomorrow is.... what? Saturday! Hooray!"


"Do you have school tomorrow?"

*grumbly yes's*

"Oh. That's too bad. I don't. Haha!"

We do this every Friday, with very little variation (unless a student gets particularly creative and decides to shout out something like, "SEXY!" after I ask, "How are you REALLY?"). Friday are my C classes. They never get tired of it. It's fucking hilarious every single time. Just like it's fucking hilarious every time I ask, "Where am I from?" and they all shout, "CANADA!" knowing goddamn well I'm American. God bless 'em.

hahaha....some of my students still think it's hilarious to say I'm from Canada, too. But some of them I'm pretty sure just really think I am, no matter how many USA maps I've shown in class to illustrate where I'm from.

And we had some sink and oven leakage last week that prompted S to come home with caulk, which I thought was hilarious. She actually knew how to use it!
