Since I am on a diet, I cannot, or should not, pick finding an uneaten chocolate bar in my lunch bag–regardless of how temping that might be. Instead, I have chosen something more heart-warming.
When I arrived at school today, later than expected but easily on time due to the CONSTRUCTION, I had word that the assistant director of studies wanted to see me. I suspected that she was going to tell me that one of my classes was being cancelled. I was right. I thought it a bit strange because the class was barely a week old, but who am I to question the economics of the ESL business. She also mentioned she would be opening a new class next week at a different level and I would be teaching that. Again, I don’t question these things. I just go find the books and start lining up my supplementary material.
I haven’t forgot about Today’s Perfect Moment, I just wanted to give you a chance to finish shaking your head or rolling your eyes.
It was her final comment that prompted this post. She had talked to the students to warn them about the impending change and one of the students expressed regret because she said that I “was the only one who helped her understand the grammar.”
I am blushing even as I type this.
On a completely different topic, if you have been following the blog and read the post about the Moroccan bread or the sandwich review, you might find this funny. As I was retrieving my lunch from the toaster oven, one of my co-workers said quite loudly, that my sandwiches “looked awesome” and that I “should open up your own sandwich shop.” In light of what I had written yesterday, you can imagine the little chuckle I tried to suppress.
