1. The grade school next door to your work has a rock band play a concert for the kids at least once a week in their open air gymnasium. (WHY?) Usually these concerts happen on Friday afternoon, but today they’re playing at 9am. Your English students complain that they can’t come up with thesis statements for their essays because the band’s cover of “Nevermind” is so loud that you can barely hear each other talk.
2. You run into a girl on the street who works at a clothing boutique you went to once. Despite only meeting her once she remembers you perfectly because you’re one of the few Americans here and she starts talking to you like a close friend. Then you find out you’re neighbors and she walks you home.
