Clinical Trial Week #8

A short report. As usual, nothing medical.

For the second week in a row, I am home while Wally went on to Columbus. I get regular texts:

I went to ESL class. We’ve been talking a lot about opposites, which is a huge vocabulary builder. Also, about describing people. I gave the advanced group a writing assignment, to describe their husbands. I gave them only 5 minutes to do it. We rarely get to do anything this advanced and they really stepped up, dipping into their lists of words and phrases, each one producing something different.

We met in South Africa.
He has a shaved head.
He is in good shape.
He has eyes that smile.

Okay, that last one was mine, but they all understood it.
