“Teachaa wear purple bras! I see her!”

Awkward moment a little while ago:

It started pouring down rain, and I realized that I had laundry out on the line (dryers are a luxury only for the majorly rich here) attempting to dry. I was wearing a pair of boxers and my bra, and ran outside into the rain to drag the laundry in. As I was frantically trying to undo the pins, I heard laughing, and looked up to see that two of my students, one boy, one girl, were standing on the small ledge that looks into my house’s courtyard, laughing at me.

Great. Never gonna live this one down.

I love living in the countryside, but the fact that I see my students EVERYWHERE means that I have very little privacy, which can actually get quite exhausting, over time, and often is actively irritating. This is a prime example, as is hearing “Teachaa, what beer you drink?” the next day at school after they see me sitting outside the Family Mart with the other foreigners, drinking. Unfortunately, there’s not much I can do about it, other than to continue to teach them that just because we’re foreigners doesn’t make their actions suddenly not rude.

There will be more on this topic later.
