Live from Locohama S1/E8: Who is Kawaguchi Sensei?

friday afternoon…1 hour ago…a conversation with Takahashi sensei in the recording room:

Takahashi Sensei: Loco-sensei, thank you for helping me.

Me: No problem. it’s my job to make your job easier.

Takahashi: No no no…

Me: No, seriously, it is. And, if you need anything, please don’t hesitate to let me know.

Takahashi: Thank you so much…

Me: For example, if you need me to help you make lessons…I’m here, and I have time. You don’t have to do everything yourself.

Takahashi: Wakarimashita.

Me: And I think if I spent more time with the first year students that might be beneficial…maybe help alleviate some of the problems we’ve been having lately.

Takahashi: Sou desu yo ne.

Me: Especially with Mik…I mean with $%&% chan. She’s totally out of control! But I think we can reign her in if we work together.

Takahashi: You really think so?

Me: Hell yeah!  I think we can be a great team if we work together and share the workload…you know what I’m saying?

Takahashi: Hai! Wakarimashita….(starts crying…)

Me: What’s…are you ok?

Takahashi: I’m so sorry, Loco sensei…you’re so kind and you always help me out in the class when I have trouble and I…

Me: Yes? You’re a what?

Takahashi: I’m…I don’t treat you fairly. But you’re right we should be more like a team…

Me: Of course. So, why are you crying…

Takahashi: I just have so much stress…sometimes I think…

Me: Ok stop right there! I think you should stop thinking like that! I mean, I spoke with Kawaguchi sensei about what…

Takahashi: You spoke with who?

Me: Kawaguchi sensei…She….

Takahashi-sensei: Who is Kawaguchi sensei? At this school?

Me: Oh Fuck I mean %$#&#%$#& sensei.  Of course…right…There is no Kawaguchi sensei. Japanese names are so difficult…ha ha. 

Takahashi: Are you ok Loco san?

Me: Of course! I don’t know where that name came from…listen Takahashi sensei…

Takahashi sensei: Who? What you call me?

Me: Oh fuck, I must be tired… I’m so sorry %$&#&$%#& sensei…I think it’s time for me to go home.

Takahashi: Take it easy now…otsukaresama deshita

    Ah.. if only you had thought to name one of them something like stupid-head-farts-a-lot-sensei that conversation could have been pretty awesome.

    Haha! It’s always weird when blog world and real world collide. I’ve totally done the same thing. It’s even weirder when you become real world friends with people who know you through your blog.

Words I love…

Everybody is a star
I can feel it when you shine on me
I love you for who you are
Not the one you feel you need to be
Ever catch a falling star
Ain't no stopping 'til it's in the ground
Everybody is a star
One big circle going round and round
