Every month we have a birthday party at our school where the kids have cake, doughnuts, fruit and fried chicken (what a combination!). This month, to our surprise all the foreigner teachers were the entertainment for the party. Our director pushed us all in front of the kids and taped a balloon to each of us and we had to dance until it fell off. Then the Korean teachers made all of us hug someone else with a balloon in between us until it popped. Not exactly my idea of a good time but whatever...
Today for the last 20 minutes of class with my 11 and 12 year olds we played a game where they split into two teams and then draw something and the rest of the class would guess what it was. I told Gary and Joseph to draw Michael Jackson. They were drawing an American flag, a man with gloves and a hat and a microphone and the class guessed "American singer" but didn't know who it was. Gary started drawing people and I asked him if it was the audience and he said, "No, it's a jury" and the kids finally guessed Michael Jackson. We had to pause the game for a couple minutes at this point because I was laughing so hard. Funny kids.
