... sing a song or two and have a more lighthearted lesson. However, we just found out today that we will have a day or two off for the New Year; so that means I'm short on lessons to complete the tests. I was trying to discuss a way around this with the Head of English at Gubei Lu school (Miss Sour-face) when she suggested that I don't test the second half of the students at all.

... and throw myself off the building/mountain/platform paratrooper style and fall to my death below. I would never do this of course. But then what if there’s a strong wind? Or the glass just gives way? Anyway, having slidey feet added to this feeling of insecurity so I stayed away from the windows.
