As a treat, I taught James how to play MASH during a one on one speaking class. He drew a spiral in the middle and everything, just like a pro. After I read him his “fortune,” he laughed for about five minutes straight and shouted, “TEA-CHUR!!!” The look of joy on his face was all the warmth I needed on this surprisingly cold Spring day.
Then, even though we were all alone in the room, he whispered, “Teacher… MASH… girls game?” I shook my head and said, “No, just kids game.” He shyly smiled while reviewing his “future.” After class, he ran to show his dad what we did. His dad owns the hagwon I work at. D’oh!
