After the students’ two-week spring break, the house is once again filled with the sounds of high school boys! This week in the Johnson LaBarberas’ dorm . . .
First student back in the dorm from break: “Where is he? Where is he?”
Livy barks from the apartment.
Student: “He’s calling me!”
Student: “I’m gonna get Miss Sarah! Miss Sarah!”
I enter the common area.
Student: “Here she comes! You’re in for it now! I called THE WIFE!”
First student: “You didn’t say anything about my birthday.”
Second student: “Yes, I did. I ate chocolate with you, bro. That was me saying happy birthday.”
Student: “We’re eating dinner in the dorm on Saturday? I will be here! Even if Barack Obama was walking by on the street!”
Student: “What is this?”
Tim: “It’s body wash.”
Student: “But it says ‘restoring.’ What does that mean?”
Tim: “It means it’s restoring your inner beauty.”
Playing poker with the students, first round of betting.
First student: “Check.”
Second student: “Check.”
Third student: “Czech Republic.”
With two of our Chinese students.
Me: “What kind of tea should we have?”
First student: “I want the Enemies of China tea!”
Second student: “What’s that?”
Tim: “It’s a tea blend I made up using Taiwanese and Vietnamese teas.”
Second student: “Yeah. I want to taste the enemy.”
Student talking to Livy.
