#765 Short stories bout 2 boys in my class


I’d like to share a story about 2 boys in my class this time.

A 5th grader, very tanned boy

The first boy is a 5th grader, very tanned, wears a baseball cap every day and speaks loudly. One day when I checked his homework, I found he wrote “Ramen” in his answer. Actually it was wrong. The instruction was to translate the phrase “What is your favorite food?” from Japanese to English. They were learning about “What” in that exercise. He was not supposed to answer with his favorite food. I knew he was not trying to give a wrong answer. He probably just misread the instruction only.
He is such a funny boy.

A 4th grader, baby castella for dad

Another boy is a 4th grader. He comes to our class after his abacus lesson. He often talks to me after our lesson.
He said, “Today is my father’s birthday.”
I said, “Your mom is going to get a birthday cake, isn’t she?”
“Yes! I’m also going to buy baby castella for dad. It is 200 yen for 12 pieces.” Then he showed me his little wallet. ”Look!” He looked a little proud of himself.
The baby castella place is not a shop but a street vender in front of the station. I always smell its sweet aroma when I pass in front of the street vender.
I said, “Your father will be proud of you! He will be very happy! Take care of yourself on your way home.”
Just imagining how he was going to buy the baby castella makes me smile.
Such a sweet kid!

お父さんに自分のお小遣いからベビーカステラを買ってあげるなんて、可愛い男の子ですね。
お父さんは、そのお店を見つけると、よくベビーカステラを買って帰ったりしているのかしら?
とっても仲良しなご家族なんだと思います。
nakoさんは、ご家族の誕生日に、何かしたりしますか?

そのベビーカステラはちょっとコワメのお兄さんが駅前のロータリーで営業しているのですが、塾帰りの子供が買いに並んだりとその対比が面白いのです。
小4の少年がお父さんの誕生日プレゼントのために屋台に並ぶって、想像するだけで心温まるでしょ!?

私は誕生日にプレゼントを贈るような家庭に育っておらず、そして今もそうですが、、、日頃からベビーカステラみたいなお菓子は食べる家庭環境にいます(なんのこっちゃ)

ラーメンボーイも、ベビーカステラボーイもとてもほっこりしますね(^^)

2人ともまっすぐで良い子なんやろなー

お誕生日だったお父さんベビーカステラいつもよりもおいしかったでしょうね♪

ラーメンボーイはイガグリ坊主の昭和の子なんです。カステラボーイは色白で目がキラキラ系
おっしゃる通り2人ともまっすぐで良い子です

ふと、2人とも男の子の話になってしまってバイアスがかかっているのかな?と気付いたのですが
女の子よりも面白ネタがあるのは男子なのでした
