friday fun - language barriers

Because you need to know how to take care of the basics when you're in a different country...
  • How To Fold A T-Shirt (just in case you never worked at The Gap... like I have)

  • Street Lingo You Need To Know (this one will initially weird you out - but then it will lead you to be thankful that someone is teaching Mugging 101 to foreign travelers)

Again... my apologies.

Trust me, master that folding T-shirt trick and you will be a hit at parties. Trust me, I've done it... Glad to have found your blog. It's Dale, the other former Church of Christ dude that you met at the summer institute. Stop by my blog to see whats up in dallas...

Hey you know what's funny? We have had an exchange student from Japan here this last week so we have dealt with the whole language barrier thing and I can relate to those vidoes...I am glad that as she talked with me she didn't do those aerobics though!

So how does it work for those bad guys that are going to kill you any way after they assault you?

what if you were robbed by three men? Are you suppose to do the motions? are they a universal signal? now I have "i was robbed by two men" stuck in my head...great!

So we're all agreed that the aerobics thing has taken up space in our brains that we desperately long to get back?

Whew.

I thought it was just me.
