Quote of the week #5

Things a friend said the other day, deliberately and delightfully taken out of context:
“Probably the best reason to have kids is to harvest their organs”.

And, a moment later:
“Evolution is racist”.

Seven flipflops made in China

As I was scouring Taobao for flip flops the other day. Taobao is basically a Chinese Amazon, but here you can get anything and everything, really everything! Including some of the strangest flip-flops I have ever laid my eyes on.

Check it,
On # 1 is the leave slipper:
 A dignified runner-up: the watermelon flop
 On third place, going for bronze, the flips for squardy feet
#4, the ever popular balloon slippers
Cute bows on fifth place
 Angry birds on your feet as #6
And last, but not least, light blue plastic hearts on seventh place
I secretly wish I could get away with some of these….

Despite the enormous amount of fantastic slippers, flip flops and sandals I have, till now, not been able to find some for me… mostly because my feet are giant size compared to Chinese feet standards. The search continues!

Fantastic animal

I gave my sixth graders the assignment to create a fantastic animal, a.k.a. a monster and to write about it in their art reflection report.
This is one sketch a girl made and what she wrote:

Orange ET

“My monster was an ET. It can fly, eat, run… He can do anything. Because it’s omnipotent and it’s a monster.
It likes to eat oranges, because it only eats oranges.”

I wonder where she got the ‘omnipotent’ from…
