Life as a Singleton

441


Okay, I got asked for the second time in a row by one of my ESL students if I was married. Picture, pointing to the ring finger and me looking at my bare one. For the second time in a row, I answered "uh, no."


Last time:


Student: "You no married?"


Me: (sheepishly) "Uh, no."


Student: "Why not?"


Me: Ummmmm, well....uhhhhhh....they say all DC guys are either gay or married. You know gay?


Student: Yes, ha ha, but you so beautiful. No boyfriend?


Sheesh, what are you, my mother?


This time made me feel a wee bit better.


Student: "You married?"


Me: "No single"


Student: "You single? Better that way. You single--you go where you want."


By the way, this one had 6 children.


Anyway, that's part of my life as a singleton...particularly at ESL.
