a friend of mine was giving an english lesson to a class of adult who had recently come to live in the united states. after placing quite a number of everyday objects on a table, he asked various members of the class to give him the ruler, the book, the pen and so on. the class went very smoothly and the students seemed interested and serious about the work that they were engaged in until when my friend turned to an italian student and said, give me the kays. the man looked surprised and somewhat at a loss. seeing this, my friend thought that the student hadn t heard him clearly, so he repeated. give me the kays. the italian shrugged his shoulders. then, he threw his arms around the teacher s neck and kissed him on both cheeks.
a story around campus has it taht a student once sent a telegram to his parents reading: mom - flunked all courses. kicked out of school. prepare pop.
two days later he received a response: pop prepared. prepare yourself.
