2,000

“사범님, 천번 했어요.” Sabumnim, I did one thousand.

?” One thousand?

“네.” Yes.

“아만다, 이천 해요!” Amanda, do two thousand!

I wrinkled up my nose. “아마 할 수 없어요—” Maybe…that’s not possible.

“화이팅!” Fighting!

“하겠어요!” I’ll do it!

Master appeared while I was on 1,200. When I was done, I let the rope fall from my hands. It flew to the floor.

“이천이나 했어요!” I did two thousand!

“하겠어요!”(As a side: Good Man said that the correct thing to say would have been “이천 번이나 했어요!” (이)나 is a marker attached to numbers that are larger than you would expect. I learned this in Sogang 2B and thought, When in the world will I ever use this?)

I am wide awake now and I think tomorrow morning I may be in for a tough time getting out of bed…
