I found this draft from January 2007. I have no idea if I ever published it.
All students are 9 Korean age, starting second grade in March, very good English speakers and pretty smart kids.
Girl One: Amanda Teacher, do you have to get married?
One: Good. I don’t want to get married. [Pause] If you don’t get married does that mean you don’t have kids?
Me, after thinking for a moment, this is Korea, not America: Yes, usually.
Boy: Unless you have sleepovers with boys.
Boy: Kissing boys makes babies. [Makes kissy faces at One.]
Girl Two: Not kissing! More than that!
One, to Boy: I wouldn’t kiss you anyways!
One, to Me: But I’ve had sleepovers with Two. And I’ve kissed her.
Shy Boy: Amanda Teacher, what does ‘shut the **** up’ mean?
Me, hand flies over Shy’s mouth: Where did you learn that?
Shy, muffled: Television.
