Now that’s what I call optimistic!

Today one of my mature students casually mentioned that her favourite aunt (86, former midwife, current globe-trotter) has just bought a five-year diary. Nobody could understand why I laughed so much.   I guess you have to be a gaijin to understand these things.

    I love it.

    That’s a positive outlook on life!

    That’s wonderful. I hope she fills it up and has to buy another one.

    Today I learned even more about her, for example she plays tennis once a week, and has recently *started* learning Korean language so that she can keep up with her favourite TV drama. Hey, good luck with mastering a foreign tongue in your lifetime, lady!
