April (fish)fool

It's snowing...

APRIL FOOL!

He he that was the one I ALWAYS did when I was petite.

But yeah Happy April Fool's Day! In France it's "Poisson d'Avril"...basically they all (supposedly sneakily...although kids don't really do subtle) stick fishes on people's backs and say "Possion d'avril" when they notice! 2 of my 3 classes today were strewn with bits of paper being cut and coloured in fish shapes and I got "caught" twice...the first was pretty good, L was like "maitresse, come here and check this please?" and just got me...S on the other hand just ran into the room like the whirlwind she is and slapped it on my back in fits of giggles! I pretended I didn't understand and got "fake" cross so they explained it to me. The whole thing comes from when they changed the date of the New Year from 1st April to 1st January and some "fools" didn't realise, apparently. And I think the fish thing is just to do with the zodiac. Anyway yeah was fun.

On other news, a teacher actually hit a child with a ruler today.

And I had a couple of fun lessons mythbusting what they know about English food...I think my favourtie question was "is it true that English people stop for tea breaks 10 times a day?". I was tempted to say like "yeah...but that means we don't feel they need to have a "strike-break" once a month". Ah, the cynicism...
