I’ve written a few posts about how my coteachers last year assumed that I was a moron. I like to think that I’m smarter than your average bear, but today was a prime example of the fact that I’m no genius.
This morning I went to Incheon Airport near Seoul. While walking from the airport train station to the departure area, I passed an indoor ice skating rink where a few dozen kids were skating.
The first thing that I noticed was that there were several kids using walkers – those aluminum things that people use to keep their balance when they need more than a cane.
My first thought was, “awww those kids are so brave! They don’t let a handicap stop them from skating.” Instead of keeping this to myself, I turned to my friend and told her what I was thinking. She started laughing so hard that she almost fell over on the escalator. She had to explain to me that the walkers were not for handicapped kids; they were a training aid for kids who can’t skate well.
….maybe I am an idiot.
Until next time.
