Two Things

First off, young ones cover your eyes. One of our vocab words this semester has been 'pen pal.' Pen, when pronounced with the wrong tones (something I'll do occasionally) is a slang word for lady-parts. "Today class, we'll be writing an introduction for our *&*($ pal! So, take out your notebooks...."  It's awkward.

Also, I'm giving a speech (in English) in front of the entire school today. I'm going to go write it now. I figure as long as I don't repeat the same word for five minutes, I should be decently alright.

  1. I hope the speech went well (I'm sure it did). I wish I could offer advice on Chinese tonal pronunciation but I can't. I can imagine that there are some jokes about this among your 7th graders! ;)
