My Funny Teaching Story.

I’ve been teaching English for over two decades now and it brings me lots of happiness and satisfaction. This keeps my spirits young and enthusiastic at all times because hanging out with young people is the part of my profession. This also invites so much fun and humor in my life which becomes a memory. I want to share some such occasion when a lesson turns out to be Laughter Episode.

This happened at a training school a few years ago. It was my first day at that school. I was with a bunch of kids in their late teens, teaching ‘Directions’ as topic.  Having explained basic commands on Directions i.e. ‘ turn left, turn right, walk straight on, turn around etc, I asked the students to blindfold me and give me commands and I would follow. As rule, each student had to give me at least three different commands so that everyone could participate in the activity.

The game started. I had to follow the directions now. Blindfolded, I kept turning right and left, and around, walking straight and so on for about three to four minutes. I had no idea where I was moving to as it was my first day at school.  All of a sudden I heard a female voice (kind of loud) saying something in Chinese language. Embarrassingly, as I removed the blindfold, I found myself standing in the middle of the female’s restroom, surrounded by five females laughing out loud. I got a bit confused at the situation first but did not show that. A successful lesson on Giving Directions ended up in the ladies restroom.  All of us had a good laugh.

  • An Attitude of Gratitude. 2019-2-28 16:55

    So true! The happiest people are happy with what they have. I think a sign of happiness is the question, "What can we do together?" since it usually happens after the basic needs are handled and there is no striving, no emergency... only time to convert into something good. Thanks for your blog - it's nice to read.

  • Pornography- A clear and present menace. 2017-2-10 10:01

    Porn may be harmful to some but for many, it's very healthy.

    Stress is a constant of the human condition. It causes the body to secret hormones that are detrimental to the physical and mental health of human beings.

    Sex is an activity that alleviates stress. When climax is achieved, the body releases a plethora of both physically-enhancing and mood-elevating hormones, defeating stress.

    For males, available sex partners are often hard to find. Though not as fulfilling as the human touch of another, porn provides an alternative stress-mitigator to sex.
