You have failed and now you must Daegu!

The week is off to an auspicious start.

First, I was informed that the meatheads that run this looney bin forgot to inform the education office that we're having English camp. So, for the first week of English camp I have to go to another school in my neighborhood. It's a 5-day camp. 5 days of waking up slightly earlier to get to another school for a few days. Not dreadful. What was annoying was the way they told me. "Matthew! You're going to Seonjae Elementary School for English camp! Do you know that?" "No." "You didn't know that?" "No." "I received an e-mail from the education office!" "I didn't." I don't like playing twenty questions. The same thing happened last year, but I was the only one that noticed. The school forgot to alert the Education Office that we were having English camp, so I was assigned to a Girl's High School. Eventually someone noticed and the High School classes were canceled.

Then, in my 2nd class, a student tackled me. From behind. I tripped. I fell down on top of him. He was working on a drawing when we were starting class. It was a Terran Battlecruiser from StarCraft. I went in for a closer look and he hid it. I snatched it when he turned his head. Then he tackled me. I was, erm, embarrassed. We finished class and I don't think the whole ordeal was as foolish as I felt. Still, getting tackled by a 6th grader is not how I wanted to start my day. Ugh. This could be a week where Matt gets piled on. I've got to be careful for the next few days.

Great moments in ESL education...When do we get to do that lesson at my school?
