Yes, we have no legality


So upon arriving at school, the vice-principal informed me that the English teacher was sick, then she asked, "You teach alone okay?"
Me: "Uh, okay, but that is illegal, ne?"
we grab the other English teacher to translate the term illegal and I ask again
me: But it is illegal for me to teach alone, right?
them: Yes.
me: So we are going to break the law?
them: Yes, but just once.
me: blink Kay...

So I taught alone. I like being alone actually except for the fact that the kids are more loud than usual and I lack the vocabulary to say, "So you see, swum is the past-participal of swim."

So that picture has been circulating around the Japanese internet. I liked it so...
