Rain Rain Go Away Please!

By Chris S., CE Adviser in China

Today we have nothing scheduled except for a Chinese language lesson. The children at the school have a holiday today, so no teaching. We were going to go on a long hike to the top of a large hill, but on account of the rain that got canceled. Might just have movie day here at the house.

I figured I would share some stories that Brit Chris has told me about his buddies back home. As you read this pretend like you have an English accent, it makes it more legit.

1. The day before his final exams at university he was studying all day. He went out for a bite to eat around dinner time and came across one of his buddies that was in law school at the university and also had his final exams the next day. The guy was dressed head to toe in khaki, safari style clothes with an Australian style hat. He was carrying a 24 pack of Fosters on his shoulder. Chris said, “hey man what are you doing? You’ve got your finals tomorrow!” He looked at Chris like he had just asked the most idiotic question and responded, “It’s Indiana Jones Day!” To which Chris responded, “Well, what’s Indiana Jones Day?” Again, the questioning look came from his friend like Chris should obviously know what that is. “We all get dressed up like Indiana Jones and watch all of the films while each drinking 24 Fosters.”

Needless to say, he passed his law exam with the equivalent of a low B.

2. Back in his days at uni (Brits call their colleges uni’s, short for university), Chris and his buddies used to have something called Chili Pepper Sundays. Basically, they would buy a bag of the hottest peppers they could find, and record themselves eating them. It’s one of the dumbest things I’ve heard, but I am tempted to try it.

I’ll try to come up with more stories throughout today. Take care everyone!
