Tell you what?

Annyong, Lindsay here!

First of all, I have to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Jessica!! In Korean, that would be saeng il chukha hamnida!

Things here are good, just got back from wiring money to America. It’s always a nail-biting process, though I have not gotten back into my old habit, as of yet. I have to bring my passport, my school pay stub, my alien card (yes, I’m an alien here, literally and figuratively), cash in hand, and a book full of bank numbers, addresses, and other important numbers.

Somehow, it happens. With a nice man who only knows “yes” “OK” and “sign here” in English.
It always puts me in a good mood once I walk out of there and breathe a sigh of relief and then a day later see an even bigger amount actually get transferred (thank you failing American economy and growing Korean won.)
So that’s that.

Now, for my latest “Ah-ha” experience. Each class at school, I review last week’s lesson for the first ten minutes. Sometimes this involves a hardcore competition where tears have been shed (babies). Sometimes I have to call in a judge to see who actually raised their hand first to tell me that “cartographer” is the word for mapmaker. But in every review session, I always start the question with.. “Who can tell me … “
But lately, this has prompted my students into song.

“Tellllll me, Tellllll me, T-T-T-T-Telllllllllllll me.”
I usually laugh. Confused. But hey, I can appreciate a song every now and then. And then I move on. But it’s been going on for so long that I had to Google it. As a former reporter, I have learned that all you need to know in life you can learn through Google. Seriously. Anything.
So I typed in “Tell Me.”

And this came up. Hope you enjoy as much as I did. (And this also explains why the boys keep pretending to open up their imaginary coats. Yikes.)

    The internets continue to amaze me every friggin day. I found stuff from TV shows that were on when I was about 4 years old in 1979. Who is putting this stuff online?? And can I buy them a beer?


  2. Hey Adam, How about you buy me a beer?Whit


  3. Adam S says:

    Unfortunately for you, I only have dollars – no Won. So no beer for you. Next time you visit Sally, take a 90 minute ride down the road and all your drinks are on me.

    I only made it through 1 minute and 33 seconds of the video before I had to make it stop. It was like Britney Spears in Korea on some sort of drugs. It was <>very<> funny, though, and it’s even funnier to imagine kids singing that to you.


  5. Jessica says:

    That is flippin’ hilarious! I think you would be the coolest teacher ever if you learned those awesome dance moves and next time you asked them “tell me …” you started dancing. But if you do plan to do that, make sure Whit is ready with the camera so we can all enjoy! and thanks for the birthday shout out!
