Cooking is tragic work!! Grating onions today, left me in tears. 😭😂
The Art students at my university are allowed to paint random building walls here on campus to show off their skills. This one is dedicate to tee Chinese president – lots of support and nationalism here!
So I’m working with my international students (Mongolia, Indonesia, and India) and asked what they did this summer.
One girl goes off because she expected to have a vacation, but got stuck working. She starts listing all of her chores, complaining, and the other students are just nodding along commiserating.
She finally gets to the part where she had to babysit her siblings and cousins. The kids are like “yep, yep” right up until she goes “So, I just want to say that I’ve learned from this summer. I mean, I am totally not going to have more than 5 kids. That’s just more than enough.” Said completely sincerely with no inflection or emphasis at all. You could see them start to nod again, stop, look at one another and turn in unison to stare at her. One girl goes “FIVE kids” with eyes real big. She goes “Yeah! I mean, I think stopping there is plenty.” They stare some more. I crack up secretly on the inside.
This in the country where 2 kids is only just now allowed universally and is still pretty rare in the cities.
The #Chinese concept of #icecream and my idea of a delicious treat are not the same 😂 This was a Chinese popsicle my student likes – green tea with a red bean filling. Somehow not quite the same as good old fashioned Chocolate 😜
