So, speaking of grief……… ” GOOD GRIEF!” Could I possibly stretch out my posts any further?! What can I say, time flies when you are sweating! Actually, the opposite is true. When you find yourself in a moment of maybe standing in the sun, or talking to someone in a non ventilated hallway, time stands still! It’s a modern day miracle! On the other hand, a burst of a/c from the store you only run into barely penetrates the first layer of fire you are surrounded with. Go figure!
On the top of today’s list of ridiculous stories is yet another classic experience with our tutor! It would seem, every single lesson has a gem to share. And apparently I should be more on top of things every lesson as well. Not only to capture the gems, but to impress! For example, recently after Abby practiced reading a few things in Khmer, it was my turn. After a sentence or two our tutor interrupts me to say, and I quote, “What is the matter with you today?! I expect much more from you and your talent! Even ABBY is reading better then you!!” I have no idea how he does this, but he manages to create statements that encourage yet discourage equally! Poor Abby, too bad she didn’t have this great “talent” I apparently possess! Ha ha ha
Notice I started a new paragraph!? This is to throw you off. Our tutor story continues! After the main part of the lesson, Abby and I are informed that we are in the presence of a ” love predictor!”……WOW! Who knew!? Immediately we were given brief descriptions of our future husbands! The man of Abby’s dreams was described as being a “very rich and good looking man!” He would love her very much and she would love him even though he was, a “dwarf person!” I waited in anticipation for what I could possibly be blessed with. Admittedly hoping my language learning abilities might sway the outcome. Apparently my husband was waiting for me in front of the apartment!!! I asked if I could go look and was
told, “Sure, he is the one picking his nose and breaking the wind by the road!!” Love predictor indeed, take my breath away! In reality though, could I honestly
expect more than a professional nose picker!? At least my future husband isn’t the guy we caught pooping just across the street! Mind you, he didn’t seem all that tall! Jokes
Thanks for stopping in on the latest SezKAPOW post. Of course, you may have not stopped in at all! Maybe, regrettably you figured throwing your email address in the box for automatic updates was a great idea! Either way, please remember I love your feedback, because for all I know, only my family reads these posts basically at knife point via Skype! Also, to my dear complainers, I will try to add my next post before letting 20 days pass….ANDREW!
