Those Crazy Kids.

"One day, I was asked to give a talk to a class of sannensei about my winter vacation. They were supposed to listen, and afterwards we'd give them a fun quiz to test their listening comprehension. I talked about traveling. I said I liked to travel, especially on the trains. I get stared at a lot by old grandmothers, and sometimes they talk about me too.

After my talk, we gave the quiz...I asked "What do I often like to do?" One boy raised his hand and in earnest, answered "Grandmothers."

I think we really need to work on their listening comprehension more."
