I hate to go on and on about how much it has rained since Thursday, but really....enough is enough!!!
Sadly, the weather forecast for us is still more rain...through Saturday. Some parts of Nagasaki have "heavy rain" forecasted for tomorrow. It's humid. It's sticky. It's smelly (due to the fact that our laundry juuuuust doesn't get dry. ew.). It's cool until you move and then, voila--your sweaty.
I hate this time of year.
I really do.
Take for example, what happened yesterday.
I don't usually teach kids' classes and focus mainly on adult language instruction.
A special version of "hell".
On Mondays, I teach a family of kids that I absolutely love. There are 5 kids in the family (4 girls, 1 boy) and they lived in the States for a little over a year. They came back a couple of years ago and their parents didn't want them to lose the English ability they gained...and here is where I come in. Our classes range from wild games of Monopoly, Uno or this crazy game called Gorillas... to Apple to Apples and Pictionary...all in English, of course. We also do writing, grammar and vocabulary exercises. I don't mind this class at all becasue the kids truly love English (and they like me, too...so it's a win-win).
This week, when I got to their house and went up to the room we use for class, the boy (who is 10) had a package on the table, a really cute smile on his face and said, "This is something you are going to love."
He unwrapped the package and handed this to me:
You may not think that a bagel is a big thing, but for those of us who love them and really have a hard time finding them, this was a great treat. The Bagel Boy had quite a few sandwiches on his menu and I had a really hard time choosing. The tandoori chicken one and the salmon, cream cheese and onion one were both popular with the ladies.
I, on the other hand, had the BBQ pork sandwich.
It was delicious!!!
