Well, I am living abroad...yet again. After Singapore, Spain, Turkey, Korea the Netherlands (and returning to Spain for a Masters) I've unpacked my backpack a little closer to home in Mexico. I live in Culiacan where I am trying my hand at teaching English to University and high school students. Below you'll find random updates as I go to festivals, explore my city or just feel like sharing a random story.

What time is it?

Friday, December 12, 2008


So, I was teaching a lesson on clothing the other day and I used the peanutbutter song (not sure if anyone remembers it here video)

And one of the lines is, "On your underwear?"

Which leads to me ask the children,

"What does underwear mean?"

And one of the boys goes, "panties" (yes this happens in each class it will always be a boy).

I agree, "Yes, that's right, panties are underwear...but panties are GIRL underwear. Only girls wear panties."

The boys look confused...they are obviously in their minds wearing panties right now.

"See underwear is a word we can use with boys AND girls, but panties is a word we ONLY use for girls.

Girls wear panties...boys do not. Girls wear underwear boys do too!"

Yep, I have a deep important job in this world, explaining that boys do not wear panties...

my work in Korea is done
