Direct from Switzerland

coffee 002

As a teacher in a private English school, in no way associated with a school board or university, it is okay to receive gifts from students. What I mean is, these gifts are not meant to influence student placement, acceptance, or any kind of academic standing.  I wouldn’t want you to think we had a mini corruption thing going on.

In the past I have gotten coffee mugs, cards, shells, sand art, stones, magnets, mini licence plates and a variety of things. Lately, I have shared some of them with you.  Most recently I was fortunate enough to have been given the object pictured above.

Obviously, it came from Switzerland.

Less obviously..

Yes, it is made entirely out of chocolate. Kitsch perhaps, but cool nonetheless.


About Anthony

I am: equal parts rebel, romantic and shockingly average Joe. a writer trapped inside of an ESL teacher's body. an introverted attention seeker. a teacher who hopes one day to be called "Captain, my Captain." an intellectual who can do some very dumb things. a person whose Japan experience, despite being so long ago, still exerts a strong influence upon him. a lover of books, music, beer, hockey and Pizza.
