Pickle picking!!!

Today one of my favourite students reminded me why I love my job as an ESl teacher so much.

When I asked him how he was, he replied in a glum voice: "Terrible! I've been picking at my pickle."
"Your pickle?"I said puzzled.
"Yes," he replied quickly. "And you should see how it looks now."
He then lifted up his head to reveal a red bump on his forehead.
"Um I think the word you are looking for is pimple," I said trying not to laugh too much.


I have almost, kind of, finished my web site. Well, the first version anyway. It is now being vetted by D, my most trusted nerd eye , so I will wait his analysis before I go any further.
