You go where?

15 Nov

I was waiting at the corner after lunch recently and noticed that there were a lot of students surrounding me.  They were all wearing matching sweatshirts.  I was kind of zoned out, but then I realized what they said.  Very neatly on the upper breast pocket they had the name of the school written in English.  “Bile Senior Middle School”

I nearly burst out laughing, right there.

My guess is in Chinese it is pronounced something like – BEE – LUH Senior Middle School but there were no Chinese characters so I can’t be sure. 

I remember the jokes that we made about Parkside Middle School back in Jackson.  I can only imagine what jokes could be told about Bile Senior Middle School.  If only those students knew.

    That’s ok. When I was in 1st grade our elementary school was under construction, so they split up the grades and scattered us around to temporary schools until construction was completed. So, in 1st grade, I attended Boner Elementary. No joke.

      Really? That was certainly a poor choice of role model!
