School Pictures

This is C.'s class picture. C. is the curly blond sloutching in the front row. And yet again, unphotogenic gene is on the attack.
Now here is E.'s class picture. She is over the teacher's right shoulder in the back row (left side batch of kids, all the way on the right) . She looks serene.
Funny C. school story.

C.'s teacher's name is Fatima Madam. C. always and forever pronounces her name as "Fat Tina" Madam. So, in our house, it's Fat Tina this and Fat Tina that. When I try to explain the humor to Indians (English speakers or not) they just stare at me with a blank look.

Humor just rarely translates.
