Humour and a kitten
My father arrives today and I may not have a lot of time to post new entries. Not that I have done so very often recently anyway, but it could become even more sporadic.
Consider yourself warned.
If I wrote only about the funny things that happen here, I could easily have enough material for this blog. I laugh a lot here.
While marking books I am often amused by the things the kids write. The children had to finish a sentence about the bluebird of happiness. One sentence came out this way:
The bluebird of happiness flew from [his] nest to eat Mr. Glenn.
Getting eaten by the bluebird of happiness does seem like something that would happen to me. What surprises me the most is that I didn't think my students understand irony, but this one must.
Better yet was this sentence about Plains Indians:
Running Bear was pleased because he had helped to father the whole tribe.
The funniest thing I saw this week was the cap worn by my timid student Maria Eugenia (Maru). Maru's cap read:
Mi mujer está de buen humor. (My woman is in a good mood.)
I was amused by this statement but almost fell over laughing later when I saw what was written on the back of the hat:
The kids in my ESL group all wanted me to explain what was so funny. I declined.
