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.)
