Friday's Feast

Appetizer
On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being highest, how polite are you?

I'm 8,5. The difference between 8,5 and 9 is due to me feeling irritated by people who think I'm far below their level. It makes me fly high on top of them and let them know all people are equal if you only have the right way to see them.

Soup
What was the last thing that made you laugh out loud?

Something one of the children said.

Salad
Who is your favorite cartoon character?

I don't like cartoons so much, so I never watch.
How is that lareg red cat called?

Main Course
Tell about the funniest teacher you ever had.

Come back over a couple of months. LOL!
I guess the most funny one was the teacher who took himself far too serious.
At the final exams he told me I was crap, my language was crap, my english was crap, and even my flip flops were crap.
I agreed with him on the last. LOL!

Then he saw me at university, talking with one of the "real englishmen", in english, about architecture.
He said nothing, just looked at my feet. Flipflops.

He saw me later when we were practicing different dialects. He listened in, said nothing. Then bowed to see my feet. Flipflops.

About a month later I was talking with the real englishman again. As I had a short history of language acquisition in the midlands, and this real englishman grew up there, we spoke fluently the juicy language and had a good laugh.

When I walked back my former teacher stopped me. Had a look at my feet which were enjoying black ladylike shoes, and looked up.
"What are you doing here?"....
It was all he said.

I looked at him with a motionless face, then told him I was studying the language he told me I should never ever speak again.
Ofcourse I spoke perfect Cambridge English.

He was silent.. stood gazing through the window for a moment and then said:
"Now you wear black shoes your english is much better."

Dessert
Complete this sentence: I strongly believe that ...

All people are equal and we all have to do our utmost to make this world a peaceful and healthy place for our children, grandchildren and 7 generations to come.

Terrific main course! And I think you mean Garfield, the cat with attitude.

Your teacher must have been a frustrated bachelor, lol, of course wearing Flip Flops you can't be a serious person !

Nice post. The main course was very good. None of my posts are very long most of the time they are very short.
