Funny questions and Grilled Cheese

Hello blogging buddies,

I'm sitting here in my bedroom blogging because I wasn't called into school today *sad face*. Now that I actually have time to write a blog post I thought I would share a few humorous stories. Without further ado here are my top 5 favourite questions I've been asked by my students so far:

5. Do you know Justin Bieber?
4. Do students in Canada really go to school on Saturdays? (I'm not sure where they got this idea from?)
3. Do you have to dig your car out of a snow bank every day?
2. Do you have bears in your backyard?
1. Are you from Canadia?

I'll be sure to add more hilarious questions as they happen. The Canadia one still cracks me up...

Now, onto the grilled cheese. I was out at a pub with my housemate ...enjoying the culture of course... when we got onto the topic of what we were going to eat when we got home. My housemate stated that he was going to 'grille' cheese on toast in the broiler (called a grille here). I of course asked why he didn't just make a grilled cheese. The man had absolutely no idea what I was talking about, he said they 'don't have that here'. So, being the wonderful roommate that I am I took him home and made him some - he was very hesitant and told me that he wasn't sure he was going to like it. A few bites later he looks me in the eyes and says 'How did we not know about this?!'. Long story short, he's had 5 grilled cheese sandwiches this week. You're welcome England.

I hope you are all having much more exciting Monday's than I am! Let me know if you enjoy hearing my silly stories and I will try to include some more.
