Ferragosto In Goa – 2010

In the past I’ve been blogging here about our Italian club’s Ferragosto celebration. But now that our club’s website has been live for a few months, I saw no sense in duplicating posts (and naturally, my work!). I guess I won’t be doing any such posts in the future.So, head on over to the Ferragosto 2010 album of Goa’s very own ‘Circolo Italiano’.

At The Park

I was down at the park with Thaïs yesterday when I overheard a small group of 5-year-olds fighting, Thaïs included. I don’t know why the fight started — my attention was drawn to them when their little voices rose in anger as they threatened each other.
Boy #1: “I’ll slap your face.”
Boy #2: “I’ll box your stomach.”
Boy #3: “I’ll call my brother. He’s bigger than you. He’s 12 years old.”
Thaïs: “I’ll call my cousin.”
Boy #3 to Thaïs: “Call your cousin. My brother is bigger than your cousin. He’s 25.”
Thaïs: “Oh yeah? That’s what you think. My cousin is bigger. He’s.. 165.”

Friendship Day

Thaïs came home from school today with a friendship bracelet around her wrist. I thought it was one of their craft projects, so I didn’t question her about it. It was only later that she started telling me about a new boy in class and how he wanted to be friends with her. By then, of course, I was all ears.

Long story short, there is this new boy in class who took the trouble to make a friendship bracelet for one classmate, and of all the kids in class he picked Thaïs. Hmm.. Time to start worrying??

Husband’s reply was instant. “I’ll break his face..”
