This morning after one of my cooking classes, I sat down at the desk in the lobby to talk to a couple of other teachers.  I had three extra cupcakes that I set down on the desk.  Two girls come over to me and start saying, “Teacher beautiful!  Teacher pretty!”  Thinking that they were trying to flatter their way to my cupcakes, I just laughed it off thanked them.  Then one of the girls, perhaps realizing she wasn’t going to get a cupcake, yelled out, “April first!!!!”

Tonight after work, I’m going to a North Korea vs. South Korea soccer match at the World Cup Stadium with some friends.  And that is not a joke. Gooooooo democracy!!
