Pig Out!

This year, my students were very generous with the Saint Valentine’s Day chocolates. I really pigged out on chocolate this week (‘to pig out” means to eat too much). Luckily, eating chocolate is good for your health!

However, too much of a good thing can be bad for you! I really do feel like I gained a couple of kilograms just this week. If you go to a zoo, you’ll often see a sign that says “Don’t Feed the Animals” (“to feed” means to give food to someone or something). I decided to make up my own version for our school…

Unfortunately, it doesn’t always stop students from tempting me!
By the way, one of the most interesting presents I was given this year was chocolate beer…
It was surprisingly bitter – and very good!
Thanks to everyone who gave Saint Valentine’s Day gifts this year! But from now on, DON'T FEED THE TEACHER! (An important message from Mayumi, the teacher’s wife!)
