Thank you so much to everyone who commented on 6C's videos. I cut and pasted all of your comments into PowerPoint so that they could see them one by one first thing when they got to class on Friday...there were 20 slides in all, and I just wish I had another video to post so that you could hear how loudly they laughed at your guesses. I am so afraid I am going to get into trouble because of them and their energy and how I tend to egg them on - I guess I will just have to keep sobering them up with sad books.
I have to give special recognition to my nephews, Devon and Nolan, and my niece, Megan. They came up with the guesses that got the loudest laughter...I guess they have the same sense of humor - these kids who are worlds apart. Brian, they also loved your guesses and your responses to their supposed guesses. They loved all of them and they felt like movie stars. It was really, really fun...
And, as for neighborhood food news:
This is a picture of my most common meal on the street. Someday I am going to video the stir-fry stand of its origin that swarms with people and activity day and night, but for now, here is my favorite order: the most tender squid and prawns, that strange but tasty Vietnamese bologna and a little bit o ham tossed with the most delicious rice, all fried up right in front of us with some little cut-up green beans on an open-aired, huge, circular griddle. We go up to the side of the stand and choose from little bowls full of either this seafood/bologna combo, fresh crab or tenderloin for them to add to a scoop from a huge mound of rice. This plate of food is just a two-minute walk from the castle door, and it costs about $1.20.
I'm sure you would default to it at least twice a week, too.
