The Curious Things of Today

The subway ride tonight, after a long week of work, was enough to spark some curiosity in my tired brain. Explain please...
  • Monks with cell phones and Rolex watches
  • My first day, being given a long narrow rod to strike students who misbehave
  • Old ladies standing while young ones sit
  • Kids sleeping in class
  • Cafeteria lunches with walnuts-octopus specials, a side of seaweed soup
  • Korean students fluent in Russian
  • Six cats seen within ten minutes in a catless country
  • Three car accidents in front of our apartment in less than a week...wait...make that four
